Incredible hike but not for the faint of heart. The knife ridge is no joke but doable without gear. Some good boots and an adventurous spirit is all you need.

This mountain is for the very experienced rock climbers. The goal here is you cannot be afraid of heights, there is a knife edge ridge you have to traverse and there is a 1500 foot drop on both sides but there are lots of hand and foot holds, there are other steep sections on this peak that are for the experienced, I went with two other people and it can be done without climbing gear which we didn't have and made it to the summit. A must: Have good griping soles on your shoes for the rock other than that enjoy the awsome views at the summit if you make it!!
