*OK... so we didn't actually climb the thing... just up to the viewpoint from the bottom. Looks a lot like hard work to me though!
Oh... and we were so worried about the state of the car, that we didn't actually make the one with the cross either... that's a poster of it that you can see here!
Following instructions from a Tourist office, we headed blindly up the worst 'road' I've ever seen. In fct to even call it a road is an insult to dirt tracks. The poor VW Golf suffered somewhat... but not quite as much as Miriam did in the back!
The stunning views from the top made it all worthwhile though.

After a shaky start (the agency forgot about us!) we made it to the picturesque vineyards of Argentina's famous wine region - Mendoza. We had appointments with 3 Bodegas to taste their wares, with a variety of tours, wines and lots of tasting (followed by lots of very sage comments on the bouquet, the body and the hue!)
The cycling got distinctly wobblier the further into the tour we went!
