Ascent Trip Report

We returned to bag this duo of peaks that we did in 2010. Once again we arrived at the trailhead on a five masted sailing ship, the Wind Surf. We were on the Classic Caribbean Cruise with Windstar and they had a beach BBQ on Pigeon Island on the northern tip of St Lucia. The island is now connected to the rest of St Lucia by a causeway and is adjacent to a Sandals Resort. After the successful campaign to reach both summits, we celebrated with food and drink at the BBQ.
