A lot of these comments are a little absurd. Yes this is steep but it's not Mount Everest. It took me 2 hours up and a little less coming down. You don't need waterproof shoes, you don't need bug spray and if it's rainy, it would be an even better challenge. Don't let fearful comments deter you.

Really tough climb get prepared for rock and root climb. The way down is even harder because it's very slippery. Check the weather and try to be there early or you might do all the hike for nothing.



Awesome walk, amazing views! However you have to climb all the time. Quite exhausting, especially down hill. You will have mucle ache the next days. It is an expert route for a reason. You have to have waterproof shoes to go to the very top. Plan 7h even if you are fit. According to Doc views are best early afternoon. Not doable if it rained 1-3 days before. Take insect repellent, you need it near the top.
