Punishing Pitons

Conquering the Pitons is a serious challenge except for the very fit. Apparently only about 70% of people who start out actually make it to the top, and most groups are taken by several guides, so that people can safely turn back. That said, the view—and the presteige—are pretty spectacular.

Try not to carry too much with you, and leave your hands free by using a backpack. You will be so proud when you make it to the top, but if you can't make it, there's always next time.

Utrip Tips

*You can hike both Petit Piton and Gros Piton, however, please be aware that while both a strenuous climbs, Petit Piton is only recommended for expert hikers
*Be sure to pack a lunch and bring lots of water
