Ascent Trip Report

Drove 15km road from N via Santa Cruz, mostly unpaved, steep and a little rough in places. Toyota Yaris made it to 450m short of summit before losing traction. 2 summits of similar elevation, the one to S c3m higher by hand level. A fine scenic drive with nice view of Pacific Coast from near the summit. Then drove via Laguna Arenal to La Fortuna for the night, tourist Costa Rica such as we haven't yet seen on our trip
