Ascent Trip Report

While on my business trip to PR took some time off to show my friends the natural treasures we have in PR. The trip was supposed to grab El Yunque but from the Mount Britton trail BUT traffic, delays, and jobsite pulled my parters away (Fernando and Noelia) and we had only a short time to hike so we did only Mount Britton. The cut off trail, however would take a nice way to main peaks in the area for those interested. See trip report for La Roca.

Still a nice easy hike in the woods - always a nice place to visit.
Extra Ascents were from two wrong turn down the cut-off trail and back and down the wrong road.
