  • Climbed this bad boy one February, a few years ago (Maybe not the best idea due to weather conditions, but hey!). Three stage rock climbing hike essentially, come equipped and pay close attention when it gets busy, especially nearing the top view point. Fun, fun though - she is a beauty!
  • Great views at the 3 peaks, and also a nice viewpoint before peak 1. There is some climbing down a steep rock wall between peaks 1 and 2 with some exposure but there are metal rings built into the rock to give a safe hold.
