This is a steep incline the whole way up and a hard climb down. The incline is at least 45 degrees. The views from the top can not be beat. Stunning! The river crossing is easy and actually feels nice to dip the feet after the descent. Two summits. Bring lots of food and water and expect to take some breaks. Rocky trail in some parts. I took my dog and he did fine but it did wipe him out pretty good for rest of day.
