Newbies Above Treeline for Sunrise Date Climbed: May 5, 2007
Four of my friends (Derik, Amanda, Paul, and Caitlin) and I woke at 2:15 on the trail by 3 and hit the summit at 5:05 for a nice sunrise. There was a fair amount of clouds so the sun rose later than usual and the clouds started raining at 11:30 after we explored some other untrodden peaks of the park. After two months of heat in Costa Rica it seemed quite cold.
