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.

Make sure you have enough time! It is a steep climb and muddy at the ridge! We meet some who needed 8 hours walking time. It's not easy but if you have done some tracks this one is really nice! A good challenge... One of the best we did and amazing views if you pick the right time or patience enough to wait for a couple of hours
