I had to fly from St Eustatius in the morning, so I got up really early and in the dark to climb The Quill by headlamp. It was raining lightly on and off, but wasn't too bad. It got light by the time I reached the crater. I then climbed the highest point and descended back down the mountain.
I didn't have time to descend into the crater so I walked down the trail back to the trailhead and then walked the road back to the hotel and then took a shower before heading off to the airport.
I saw a lot of birds and butterflies, but no other wildlife, though I was moving quickly. It was raining all the way down the mountain, but there was only a drizzle on the ascent.
