    A little skill is required for the final ascent, because you have to climb up a short passage free. It did not seem completely harmless to me. A little further up a rope is attached, which facilitates the way back.
    With stronger rain, I would advise against the rise.

    We're actually in absolute fog with barely an arm's length wide view, probably 5 meters before the summit reversed. It was wet, you did not see how far it is and where exactly the way is.

    Circular route from Encumeada Pass, via Pico Grande, Pico Jorge and back to the pass. Fantastic tour. Take enough drinks with you. Surefootedness and endurance required. Start early.

    The Pico Grande is almost ascent in ascent - the only tour of Madeira that we have met, which unfortunately can not reach the summit in heavy rain.
    Often, the mountain is covered in clouds, if you want to experience the magnificent view is probably best in the morning, but a few hours after sunrise, so that the heat has time to expel vapor.
    The weather forecast is perhaps best taken from the Pico do Arieiro.
    The tour is highly recommended!
