Route Climbed: from Fontes via Boca da Corrida Date Climbed: May 7, 2009
I started in Fontes and walked to Pico da Cruz (1.311m), Chão dos Terreiros (1.436m), Pico (no name, 1.410m), via Boca da Corrida to Pico do Grande (1.654m). Also climbed the other summit Pico do Cerco (1.617m) and Pico da Malhada (1.236m) on the way back. finally returned to Fontes walking all the way around Chão dos Terreiros. Good walk, took about 7 hours.
This is actually a combination of route 5 and route 36 from the Rother Wanderführer Madeira.
Route Climbed: Boca da Curida - Pico Grande Date Climbed: May 2003
Perfect day with very nice views of the central range. Had to fight the gorse bushes though. Some five days later we met a group from the mountaineer club of Serra de Agua who cleared the trai with machetes. GREAT views from the summit!
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
