This is an ambitious hike. If you just arrived from lower elevations, you might want to wait a day or two to acclimate. Just about anybody can make it to the top if you have plenty of time. Don't take your dog! Do take plenty to drink. Don't come back down by the steps, take the social trail to Barr Trail. Any of the locals that you meet at the top can help you find your way down to Barr Trail.
