My husband and I climbed Huaynapicchu at 7 am a little over a week ago while visiting Machu Picchu. It's a steep ascent but totally doable, with ropes to assist in some more precarious spots. It took us only 45 minutes to reach the top--and it was totally clouded in. We waited, and about 30-40 minutes later, the clouds parted to reveal the most amazing views of Machu Picchu. TOTALLY worth it as a result!
The next day, however, it rained for those ascending and the clouds never parted. It was much slippier and we heard a few people fell on the way down (which is more treacherous when wet, obviously). So it's a crapshoot whether or not you'll get the beautiful views of Machu Picchu. Worth the risk in our opinions, but to each their own.
