Next Day
If you're on a volcanic island it's good form to climb the volcano, but is this really a good idea...
Grasping foliage, slippery vines, clinging mud, and steep trails that require ropes to ascend - haven't we had enough of climbing? It takes ten hours to go up and come down.
Clouds greeted our small group at the top and stole our view. A small crater lake offered muddy water as relief from the heat, but we prefered sitting on the black lava rock.
