“One of the toughest climbs and best views in Las Vegas.”— Rob Erekson
Once on the trail, it starts out very hikeable and will get progressively steeper with a lot of switchbacks until you get near the top, at which point climbing up and over rocks will be required to reach the ultimate peak.
The lower sections of the trail are typical of the desert, with some rock obstacles that aren't overly challenging (but still demand your attention), while the upper sections can be very difficult at times. Once at the top of the mountain, care must be taken coming back down as it's easy to slip and fall on the steeper sections at the top.
