... roll an ankle! After the mirador it's a much easier 1.5 hour descent through the forest and then you're done! Concepción conquered!
Our guide recommended us to take good hiking shoes (I'm surprised my joggers held up through the volcanic rock!), light snacks, at least 3L water ( though in the end I only used 1.5L), and a spare shirt.

BJ said that you couldn't see anything there anyway, just fel the heat coming thru the rocks. As nice as heat would have been, I was defo voting for the down option. 5 hours up, 6 hours down. MIght not sound logical but the surface was so loose and slippery that going back down was ...
