The scariest thing i've done as a climber. The peak has the loosest rock I have ever encountered and there is 5th class climbing involved. It wasn't getting up that was so hard, it was the downclimb. Scary as hell. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Climbed the middle peak thinking it was higher and then had to go over to the north peak for a true "summit". Not happy about that, hehehe. The guidebook says that most people will want a rope, but, i don't know where the hell you would put gear.
