As soon as we were out of the reach of the cold wind, we could also admire more of the tines and towers of Cerro Castillo's mountain range, which gave it the name. In the first pic still the little Laguna Cerro castillo right hand, but also the creek that spills out of it, showing us already our path up there. To the left, the gentls slopes of Morro Rojo, as they point downward into the Valley of Rio Ibañez, the broad stream in the picture. Awesome how far we can see despite of the cloudy weather.

If we look back (pic), we can see the now peaceful Paso Peñon, how he is cut into the mountains surrounding.
One interesting outcrop on the right hand side (better seen in the last pic), which forms a very sharp cone, at some view angles almost looking like a big V. This one became famous for me, some days later - no, nights - in "the night of the nights".

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
