Ascent Trip Report

Came from Pico do Arieiro across the mountains, and finished on Pico Ruivo. The carpool taxis that guide Pauli setup, picked us up on the North side of the island at Achada do Teixeira, and took us back to Funchal.

A great traverse over the high part of the island. Some exposed parts but in general a nice hike.
