I went up the other day "the legal backway", it was very muddy and slippery. Crampons(spikes) recommended. I've done this hike many times. Thinking of going up this weekend. if you'd like to join send me a message on instagram @angelo_q or email me at chicolo@hotmail.com Make sure to bring plenty of water and food and maybe some layers because it can get pretty windy and wet up top
