    Not if you look up. There is also a longer way to skip some ladders in the last stretch. We did that. Some of the rocks definitely harder than the ladders.

    It’s a challenging hike. Doable for most in moderate shape (with plenty of water and appropriate shoes for hiking). In most cases, I wouldn’t recommend bringing a 10 month old.
