Description:

An extremely difficult hike, but the entire thing is scenic. Absolutely spectacular views all the way up. We left before sunrise, so it was an incredible thing to watch from the mountain. Layers are a must as well as gloves to keep yourself from tearing up your hands. The downside for me was that the very top is basically sand and it was incredibly hard on my knees on the way back down. I thought the hike back would be easier, but it definitely was not because of how hard it was on the knees. All in all, it's definitely worth tackling at least once in your lifetime.
