#1: Facing N – the "confluence rock" is on the lower right corner of the picture

(visited by Jose Simoes)

12-Jun-2001 -- By road first.

Then using small forest roads, left the car 1.3 Km distance.

Walk, first throught a dense forest of eucalyptus. Just bad luck in the approach direction.

Then it got much better.

The confluence itself is in a relatively easy terrain. Not a lot of vegetation (but a vegetation barrier, in the vicinity). A few trenches (?).
