Very loose rock from half way point until the top. Hard sole boots required. Not an easy climb. Fantastic views at the top. Flat level area about a third of the way up, ideal for a picnic.

Absolutely amazing day out. Tough climb but totally worth it. Views were amazing. Took up 2 hours to reach the top.

I'm rating this climb as a 5 because it is a most fantastic achievement when completed. But tough it is. Torturous going up, terrifying coming down. The sense of relief and exhilaration when you actually get to the top is an experience. And then you...More

No charge to climb, small charge to park in parking lot. Hiking staffs are available for rent between the parking lot and gift shop. Good investment.
Hi, is it possible to climb up alone/on my own? Is the path signposted? Or are there groups one could join? Thanks
