Although there is a marked path to climb, the truth is heavy, but do not give up, if I could climb, so can you, the one who perseveres enough. The surprise is that they charge a fee of $30 for climbing the hill, and with that I would expect that there were at least some relief station above, since the only support is precisely at the base of the hill.
