After committing to the mountain at the entry point, this wide verge of the road is a safe haven to pull off.
Plenty of space to do running repairs, an urgent visit to the 'Lava-tree".
Even though its less than 10 minutes to the top, if you get there in white-season, it is probably half anhour before the kids will be dressed, car unpacked, and anywhere close to ammenities.
Not that that is what this stop is for.
IF you happen to stop here for whatever reason, there is a bonus for the happy Jeeker who has more than a slight height advantage.
