  • Great trip to the top. Challenging with many difficult passages where it was reasonably smooth. We didn't get the hiking boots with so it was in trekking sandals.

  • Climbing the rock is a cool excursion apra make a day that does not get too hot or early in the morning. Expectacular views. You have to go with proper shoes and comfortable clothes, especially if you are going to pass the tunnel area because the ground slips a lot, more down than when climbing, from the tunnel do not recommend the visit to minors since the ascent from that point does not have outside railing (to sea) and can be dangerous with children.
