The climb up to the peak was no problem. Camped out side of a mountain hut below the summit. The views from the top were amazing. We could see Mt. Fuji coming up out of a sea of clouds. The route that we chose to come down was short and steep with many ladders. It certainly was a knee buster, and took about 6 hours to descend. Almost the same it took us to Ascend.
