Route Climbed: summit route Date Climbed: March 1999
Spent a weekend scuba diving in Saba and had a chance to climb Mt. Scenery. The climb is more of a walk up 1,064 steps, but the view from the summit was enjoyable. You could see some of the surrounding islands such as St. Martin, St. Barts, and St. Kitts off in the distance. On the other hand, the diving was amazing! Saba has a protected reef system which provides an abundance of marine life.
The Carribean sun was very intense on the way up. There are spectacular views of Saba and other nearby islands from the top. Shortly after I got there, a cloud bank rolled in and visibility was intermittent.
