Hill features

The most iconic mountain on Mauritius, the mountain with the nipple!

Approach notes

The Inn Pin of Mauritius! Climbing equipment is needed to gain the very summit but the shoulder can be reached by the experienced walker/ scrambler. The old iron staples have all been removed, apart from a few remaining ones on the top boulder. There are now bolts to clip for protection from the shoulder to the neck of the perched bolder and this can be further protected with slings clipped through the remaining rungs. Several large new ring bolts aid the abseil descents.
