Definitely a hard hike from a stamina standpoint. 2,200 steps, so it’s not difficult terrain - just really tough climbing up. The day I did it was partly cloudy, and unfortunately Mt. Cook was mostly obscured from view. If you’re interested in fantastic views while hiking, make sure you go on a clear day.
