Here is a quick summary of my climbs in the Azores islands.
How to get there:
This is the highest point on the Terceira island in the Azores. The summit is full of antennas and is served by a road. Access is from the west side of the island, the small side road that climbs to the very summit is well signed.
Route description:
This is a drive-up mountain. The entire top area is full of ugly antennas.
Heidi and I was in transit from Faial (Horta) to Sao Miguel. We hired a taxi for 3 hours of sightseeing (2014 cost Euro 50). It was easy to travel to the summit, unfortunately in the middle of a cloud. Very limited visibility.
