    The climb wasn't too difficult. We took 2 hours to climb up and 1.5 hours down. The ladders were a little rusty and shaky.

    Takes about 2 hours to get to the top if you lugging supplies for a overnight. Both times I started the climb at about 10pm, arriving just short of midnight. The peak however, registers only 2425feet...
