My wife and I are 55 and 56. We are in good shape and made the hike/climb just fine. It was easier than expected after reading many of the reviews. It’s a short strenuous hike/climb, but if you are in decent shape you can do...More

What a great experience! Have to say that it is a challenging hike, but very doable, if you are in reasonable shape or take your time. You can get up and down in about 2.5 hours, so doesn't have to take all day. Highly recommended!

Tried to keep up with my teenage boys and should have known better. They are still laughing at me two days later! Beautiful scenery, saguaros, chollas, and all sorts of beautiful geology and walls to make a morning hike/run fantastic.

Take a morning walk to the top and see the area come alive before the heat gets to be too much. Lots to see and appreciate.

My husband is on business, so I climbed SOLO. Nice people around! Not easy climb, but so worth it! Bring water and sunscreen. Do Not climb unless you have adequate footwear. Free entrance. The only bathroom around are the ones on the base.
