First off lets get things straight. This is not a walk. This is most definitely a hike. I used the words ‘not fun’, ‘torturous’, ‘I’m dying’, ‘what the fuck’ and ‘are we there yet’ several times on the way up.
Its not like I am an inexperienced hiker. I’ve hiked to Mt Everest for christ sake. I think it came down to ill mental preparation. If someone had told me it was going to be a five hour rock climbing lesson I probably would have been okay with it.
