Ascent Trip Report

Having come up from the park office in a seven hour slog for 14km and 2000m, we had a 2.30am wake up call at the refuge and hiked for 2hrs to get to the summit of Cerro Chirripo at 5.30am. After watching the sunrise we then decended Chirripo and hiked up Cerro Crestones straight afterwards. A great hike all told with great weather and scenery. We then had a five hour decent from the refuge to the park gate to finish off a hard two days of hiking.
