A good work out. I tackled North Fortuna Peak first which I really enjoyed. It also meant that I went down the stairs after climbing South Fortuna. There is very little shade so be prepared. I also recommend hiking in the morning as it's cooler and has less people. This is a great loop if you are trying to complete the 5 Peaks Challenge as you can knock out two peaks in one go.
