Thanks for your help!



What a disaster, being stuck on Santa Domingo and not getting any refund from DCA (Dutch Carribean Airlines)!



I hope that you will be visiting this sunny island sometime.

For a signature photo, hold the mouse over your best pic without clicking.



Also, if you are not finished with the page, write UNDER CONSTRUCTION right at the top of the page. This will allow people to know to hold off the votes until you are finished.



Keep working on the page, and it will be really great.



Interestingly, I was supposed to climb this peak last December, but Royal Dutch Airlines went bankrupt and we got stuck in Santo Domingo and never did get a refund.

This peak should be added to the Caribbean Peaks related mountains group. You can do this after going to edit page.

You can get information on the Christoffel National Park, where this peak is located at:
http://www.christoffelpark.org/
For such a low mountain, the climb was surprisingly fun, with a good scramble at the top and some moderate exposure (Class III).
Word of caution: climb this in the morning, starting before 11:00. The website recommends this, but we arrived at noon and the park wardens would not let us climb it, saying that the 11:00 AM cut-off was not a recommendation, but an absolute rule. Of course, we ignored them, snuck in, and climbed this hill anyway (we were flying out that afternoon and didn't have the option of coming back the following day). The climb is about half-way along a one-way dirt road within the National Park. When we got to the exit gate, it was locked. I guess they really meant their cut-off time... We were lucky, we called the emergency number at the bottom of the map they handed us at the park office and although nobody answered (it seems like the person manning the number--a cell phone--was using it for a personal call), eventually this guy came to the gate and opened it for us. We barely made our flight out...
