I started this route from the railing at the quay and ran straight up the wooden walkway and 870 steeps to the lighthouse at the top of the climb. The route is very straightforward and gets very steep need the summit. This is a sea to summit route and at the top you overlook “Pinnacle Rock” the most photographed location in the Galapagos. You need a guide so choose a fast one and get after it. I was 7:57 but my watch didn’t stop so can only prove 8:04..
