I climbed Olumo Rock on my first visit to Nigeria, which lasted for 4 months.  I got 3/4 of the way, and looked down, and realized where I was.  The last part of the climb had nothing for you to hold on to.  I thought 3/4 of the way was pretty good. Climbing that rock any further, you are putting your life in danger.

Hero,

My patience with Nigeria is zero.  Naijas have know sense of history and perserving history.  It is just incredible.  Do you know the Ijebe Odi has one of the largest, ancient earthworks on the continent, and those idiots are destroying it.  I don't see it being perserved unless foreigners come in, control it , and operate it. 

It is like coming to Badagry, and these fools are praising the missionary and slave traders.  Now why would the African diaspora come pay their money to hear how wonderful their ancestors tormentors were.

I am baffled at the backwardness and cluelessness of the people.  I am like who in the hell is doing the pr and marketing.  If I had the financial backing, control, and resources, move the Naijas out of the way, I could really run that place and attract the AA crowd.

Naija could have really been a fascinating place to visit.   However, the ignoramouses that run that country have just run it into the ground.

is Olumo rock illuminated at night?

Can you imagine if Aso rock was all illuminated at night, how glorious + money spinning for tourism that would be?

Just look at how Paris, London and New York illuminate their monuments. Can you imagine the Duomo in Florence NOT lit up at night? I can't imagine!

Anyways folks, light = magnificence = recognition and hightlighting of a monument.

Olumo rock looks pretty interesting. Hopefully I'll visit the place someday.

I've been to Idanre Hills when young, and it was a fascinating experience. We climbed and climbed till we got to the top of the mountains and saw the town far beneath us in the distance.

Some of those pictures look like caves though. I'm guessing Olumo rock has a lot of caves. At least that's what they'd be called by foreigners, I think.
