Very technical climb. Segment on strava shows 1:06:08 however I started at the true trailhead to the observation deck ( two feet on deck ) 

This route is special to me. I remember the first time I tried to run this I could only run .5mile before I began to walk. Over the course of 2 years I chipped away at this, from 2 hours to today under 1:07. This trek is gnarly, but so rewarding. I use this as my gauge on overall climbing ability.
