There is a portion over rocks that needs to be traversed carefully and when the rocks are dry; but the view at the top is great. Young kids seem to bounce along easily; an older person in decent shape can make it up. Someone who had a hip replacement was not able to make it up. The young hikers seem to find it fairly easy and of course taller people with a longer reach seem to find this easier. There are places where you have to find a spot for your foot, hold on while you find the next spot to place your foot. It is easier to have a person help pull you up in one spot. The top is not a platform, but rather just the natural rock, so no hand rail; but a gorgeous 360 view and sense of accomplishmet. It took us under 2 hrs. for the round trip from the Bearfence mtn parking.
