Personally, I believe he brought me here deliberately... Knowing that I am an ex-pilot and knowing that I was interested in such things being a Geocacher. (please see my cache GC13VE9 a Monument to the Worlds Biggest air Disaster...Here...in Tenerife) I placed a cache nearby, as Santiago told me that the occupants had died and 'out of respect' Tinerfenians would leave the actual site alone. He was wrong. The occupants survived. Please read on.
This Piper PA-28 crashed on January 25th, 2009 in a steep location in the Parque Natural de la Corona Forestal between Roque Grande and Roque de la Escalera.
On board were three 3 people in their late twenties who survived the crash due to the quick responses of the Guardia Civil and another Rescue Service who sent two Helicopters to airlift the occupants.
This is a serious Hike ! (Difficulty 4.5)
***Over the years... I have been here three times and failed a fourth time due to the landslides and the rain ***
Please .... Do Not Go Alone
