Mount Chirripó: Part 1

Hiking to the summit of Mount Chirripó was a center point of our Costa Rican trip. It's the highest mountain between Guatemala and Columbia. We got an early start before sunrise.

Starting point: 5,000'

We passed through different trail sections, such as this one at 13 km

This lizard kindly obliged my request to sit on a light colored stone atop a log

A very welcome site. Base camp at just over 11,000'

14.5 km in, just outside the base camp
