The first time I was there was in 1983 before they allowed any climbing.

The second time I took a novice climber up right after they openned it up for climbers in 1988. The weather was mixed, with some light rain during the early afternoon, but by dusk it was clear and the view was incredible. Most people were up and down by early afternoon, but I think that late afternoon was better.

Its not an overly difficult climb, however in some places your feet will slide back due to loose ash.
