Gated check point, with sign in required and passport check. Permit and ticket required. Sign posted path descending first to a saddle, then a very steep climb, with stone steps for most of the ascent, switchbacks and fixed metal ropes in some places to assist with balance. Sheer drop offs in some places. Lookout just before summit, then narrow rock tunnel to clamber throughto reach the summit. 35 mins to summit, 45 mins descent via a circuit route, with very steep stone steps, requiring climb down backwards, ladder-style. No handholds, rope or cables on this section past the storehouses and back to the track junction just below the first lookout.
Not recommended if you suffer from vertigo or in wet weather
