Türkçe

29-kas-2009 -- Soma'dan Gördes istikametine devam eden yolda noktaya yaklaşan kısa bir tarla yolu bulup arabamızı parkettik. Nokta yukarılarda, tırmanış yapacağız. Hızla yüksemeye başlayıp sıkı bir perfonmansla noktaya vardık. Sık ağaçlık arazi çok zor geçit verdi. En sonunda ayaklarımızın altında meşe ve ardıçla yoğun bir şekilde kaplı yemyeşil bir topoğrafya uzanıyordu. Koşar adım arabamıza dönerek 39N 29E noktasına devam ettik.

29-Nov-2009 -- The story started at 41N 32E.

We took the Soma-Gördes route. A convenient left turn determined on our GPS got us near the point. It required quite an ascent this time up to the CP, struggling through the thick and rocky oakland. In the end, we both were overlooking the lush landscape at the Confluence.

We got to hurry since aiming at making 39N 29E as well before sunset.

Continued at 39N 29E.
