The twin volcanic peaks, Gros and Petit Piton, rise majestically from the calm blue water enfolding the island of St. Lucia. They stand in solidarity guarding the lush beauty of the land. In fact, the nomadic ancients who once lived here personified the peaks as images of their Gods. They worshiped them with fervor, imploring these sacred beings to protect them from all harm.

Today, adventurers accept the challenge to scrabble to the top of the higher peak. After achieving their quest, they gaze about in wonder as they search the limitless sea or drink in the raw beauty of the dense vegetation. They cannot help but be moved by the grandeur of all they behold.
