Ascent Trip Report

Hiked here from Hotel Arenal on Day 3 of my Roraima trek, just take the trail towards Hotel Coati. Be aware that after rain the path will become flooded quickly & you may need to swim across fast-flowing streams to get back to camp, if you are not overnighting in Coati. My GPS had the location of the concrete marker as 5.2019,-60.7375 / 5°12'06.8"N 60°44'15.0"W - this is slightly different to where the border appears on maps. See Roraima main peak trip report for more info.
