The normal route is no more then a hard slog uphill...nothing technical about it. loose rock makes it difficult to walk...you can go al the wy to the summit using skipoles for support..so

Don't eat any eggs...  :'(

Seriously. I got food poisoning in December in Puenta Del Inca and ended up in hospital. Had to abandon my climb thanks to a dose of Salmonella Enteritis...

Yeah, but Harry's illness lasted only 2 days - unfortunately I had to get taken off on a mule. I know Harry summitted on 1 Jan (thankfully) along with 2 others. Steve from the group summitted on Dec 30th. Unfortunately my sickness lasted around 9 days...  :-[

I'll probably return next year. (oh yeah, forgot to mention I also had Campylobacter Jejunii in my system according to the hospital reports..)
