Definitely a challenging hike that is mostly boulder scrambling with a fair bit of exposure in quite a few places. Need to be agile and confident rock and boulder hopping to make it up this track. It does reward you with beautiful views of the surrounding cliffs and vistas below and could serve as access to further adventures if you want.
We did find a couple of small pools of water about half way up so maybe that was the spring? Were also told there were some remnants of an old bootleggers still somewhere up there but we did not find them.
A fun but definitely “hard” hike.
