At 5 o´clock in the morning a team of 6 persons left Port Louis. Steve was the taxi driver and one of the local guides and Maxwell (member of Top to Top Mauritius) was the other local guide. Two Norwegian sailors, Eivind and Bjørnar from the Norwegian yacht Empire and one Swedish sailor Johanna from the Norwegian yacht Go Beyond and last our mountain guide Dario from Top to Top Expedition. The summit to be climbed was the amazing looking mountain Peter Both. At the top of the mountain lays a huge rock that makes a special profile of the mountain.
All 6 of us climbed up on slippery rocks, pulling us up in grass and branches. About 100 meters before the summit we put on harnesses and roped in. At 8 o´clock, just in time for breakfast we stood at the top of the mountain and enjoyed the amazing view of Mauritius. What a great way to start the day!
Before lunch we were back down with 2 big bags of rubbish that we collected on the way down. Top to Top is doing a great thing around the world with their message to collect rubbish!
Thank you Dario for a great morning!
