We bought tickets for the hike before our arrival in Peru. After reading all I could about the climb I will admit I really didn't think it was something I could do. I am afraid of heights, middle aged and of average health. It is a definite climb up a lot of stairs, some on narrow paths. There are wire rails to hold on to in most of the tighter areas. There was no problem with people passing on the path. There are places with room for people to get around each other. As far as the climb up,what worked for my husband and I was to just take a break or a photo opportunity when we needed a break. slow a d steady. We took our time and wore good hiking shoes,which i think would be really helpful especially if it is damp, we made it to the top. The views were amazing and worth the effort. I was a little more worried about the climb down and this went fine too. Just take your time. There were a good number of people much older than me making this climb.
