Mount Chirripó: Part 2

After a quick lunch at the base camp, we made a final push to the summit of Mount Chirripo. A lot of uphill climbing on already tired legs. Tired, I meant exhausted.

It was cold and rainy for most of the final kilometers, which cause the trail to become a small stream.

The summit in the cloudy distance. Mostly vertical towards the end. 

The Summit!! Just over 12, 500'. Our desired views of both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts were obscured by thick clouds. Next time... yeah right. Oh, and please note my stylish emergency rain poncho. I've been carrying that thing around since I was a boy scout and finally had reason to break the seal.
