    This was a terrific experience, inspired and organized by my brother-in-law, Douglas Parra. It's a pretty long hike in from Paraitepuy, though not hard. But the final ascent is pretty daunting -- wet...

    Fantastic, unhurried 5 or 6 day walk. We were totally unprepared and froze on top, but it was worth it. Would go back anytime.

    lovily sunny weather 4 the 2 day approach. tipped it down for the summit walk. p.s. walking under waterfalls is a great experience but they're very cold and a hat is a very wise choice. cloudy on top.

    I don't think I could have spent Christmas in a more strange location. A particulary wet descent - fond memories of yellow tarpaulins and having to swim the river in full flood!!

    A great trip from San Francisco. We hired a guide out of C.Bolivar, but could've done as well with the guides from San Francisco. First two days easy.
