Hiked up to the cable and was treated to great views of Aguas Caliente. The bottom part of the entire ladder for the first 15m or so are gone but a steel cable exists. Tested the cable but skipped it due to the rain that afternoon and short schedule. Will have to go back next time.
Scrambling and aid climbing ... Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2011
Many of the ladders were damaged and some where gone, thanks to the rainy season. I scrambled up anyway, using the remains of the ladder plus a thick steel cable that was hanging down where the longest ladders should have been.
