Geocache Description:

The Rock - A Rocha

English version:Of course Pico do Areeiro is one of the most attractive points on Madeira, but sometimes it’s like an anthill. In this case I have an alternative for you. In good weather the view to Funchal and to the mountains is even better.

It’s “A Rock” – nameless, and no track is leading directly to this boulder. You have to find out the best way to get up – and you have to climb. Depending on the side you try, it’s more or less difficult. In bad weather with fog forget it. There’s nearly no mark to orientate and you get lost in one of the abysses. The journey is the reward!

Don’t forget you are walking on the top of the mountains of Madeira. Take to eat and to drink with you. Mountain boots and anorak are a must. There are no regularly bus lines to Pico do Areeiro. You have to rent a car or to drive by taxi.

Caches to combine with: Areeiro, Poço da Neve, Passeio Duro, Hells Throat, Aguas do Tornos. 6 caches on a really hard trail.

Em português:Naturalmente o Pico do Areeiro é um dos pontos mais atractivos na Madeira, mas algumas vezes parece um formigueiro.Então apresento-lhe uma alternativa – A Rocha. Quando está bom tempo, a vista para o Funchal e para as montanhas é ainda melhor.

Não tem um nome concreto e não há um caminho certo que leve directamente à rocha. Tem que procurar o melhor trilho para subir e tem que trepar. Dependendo do lado onde tentar será mais ou menos difícil.

Quando faz mau tempo é para esquecer. Não há quase nenhuma marcação para orientar o caminho e perder-se-á nos abismos. O caminho é o objectivo!

Não esqueça, está a caminhar no topo das montanhas da Madeira. Leve de beber e comer consigo. As botas de montanha e um anoraque são obrigatórios. Não há linhas de autocarro para o pico. Tem que alugar um carro ou ir de táxi.

As caches para combinar: Areeiro, Poço da Neve, Passeio Duro, Hells Throat e Aguas do Tornos. 6 caches num caminho verdadeiramente duro.
