Didn’t make it up all the way, just to the first rope. Pretty good considering we did it on December 20th. It got too icy but could see how it would be an amazing view at the top! Will have to attempt again in the spring/summer.

Three sketchy rope sections near the top but worth it.

The views are key here, you get a glimpse of 360 around you, the town, the ocean, the waterfalls of course across the road! Much worth it.
