3 out of 5 stars Cool start

Being sick for the last week, made me huff and puff and cough till I got dizzy and lowered off 1/2 up. I'll be back when I'm healthy!

2 out of 5 stars Not worth the walk

If you haven't been out there it doesn't hurt but you wont find me going that far for the climbs again. Wasn't worth the hike.
