Mr. Augdoppler paid me a visit at Taormina. At 1130CEST we
left my home by car and went via the villages of
Francavilla di Sicilia / Moio Alcantara and Roccella Valdemone to the Monte
Castelazzo road crossing. Contrary to my first attempt we proceeded a little
bit more, in order to find a way down to the gap were we supposed the point to be.
Hans drove the car down a winded dirt road until there was no longer a
chance to proceed. Then we dressed properly and started to
crawl several hundreds of meters through dense thicket with thorny plants.
Finally we found the point.
There is a tree where we fixed our plate. This is
the view towards East, too.
We duly made the other directions, please note the fascinating variety of a
Sicilian thicket forest in the Peloritani Mountains region! (North, South, West).
The typical fruit in the area is the chestnut tree. Here you see the
It was a hard point to make but I am glad to having converted my attempt
into a successful visit with Hans' help.
