The toughest and steepest mountain I’ve faced yet.
The terrain is very rocky and loose which makes the climb very hard. With several parts that require scrambling. Also, the steepness of the mountain makes the hike quite scary, especially while descending.
The views at the top though, are AMAZING!!!
