Ascent Trip Report

A couple of friends and I hiked up to the island high point from the village of Juju (sea level). The top has a huge telecommunications tower. From the top you can see a whole lot of ocean. Even Immanuel Kant would probably categorize the view as sublime, and I am pretty sure he had a strict criteria. In trying to decide whether it was a dynamic or mathematical sublimity, I would argue it is mathematical since a calm ocean doesn't create a sense of fearfulness, but there it brings a sense of incalculability. Supersensible is the new adjective to replace awesome.
