... the devils stair case was the red crater, a huge crater made from a volcano explosion. At this point there was no one else near us, it was dead silent and it was so eerily misty that we could hardly even see each other. After a small walk along this flat part we reached the main climb, up to the highest point, the **********e of the whole trek.
