Ascent Trip Report

Waiting on the guide to catch up to me and wanting more excercise and always looking for a different view or perspective - SIDE TRIP - I ran up this little maintenance road to a small single tower that is NOT part of the main ridge on the top of Volcan Baru and about 500 feet lower. Adjoining the Guide and Danny we all descended Baru together.
