Curucutí Climbing Notes

    Eloy G. Boulton from Venezuela

    Best months for climbing: dry season. From december to april
    Access: from Caracas, take the highway Autopista Regional del Centro, exit at Charallave and head towards San Casimiro (paved road). On the way (before reaching San Casimiro) ask for the small town La Providencia (it's a 5 km. ride by a narrow and in not very good conditions road). Look for a local resident to help you identify the mountain. It is a tropical cloud-forest mountain. The route is tough and there is not a market trail. Very few people have reached the summit, so be careful. An intermediate camp (with hammock rather than tent)is advisable.
    Supplies: Caracas, Charallave or San Casimiro.
