Anyone else who opted to walk along the tracks to Machu Picchu notice this massive chunk of stone? The main diamond formation is easily visible from the tourist train, and you can take a closer look by following the 'Inka Bridge' trail once you are in the ruins. It seems unlikely that other climbers haven't seen it before and I'm assuming the area is closed to climbing given the proximity to the UNESCO site, but Is still fun to imagine climbing 10 pitches and topping out to a view of the Ruins...
