Well worth it for the views and the wildlife. If you can, train first. Stair-climber at gym 3-4x per week helped me successfully summit this peak the first time. Elevation gain is tough and becomes gradually more noticeable especially after you pass the Josephine Saddle. The view from the peak is breathtaking, if you haven't already lost your breath on the way up.

Wear thick socks or your feet (especially toes) will bleed and blister on the way down. Bring plenty of water/powerade/etc and start early in the day. The descent is extremely rocky and hard on knees, ankles, toes, etc.,

10 out of 10, would recommend to any experienced hiker
