what i am curious about is if it is wise for the 3 of us (a few more may come) to make this hike. i have heard how dangerous it is but i wanted to make sure it would be safe for us before we made the 2.5-3 hour drive up. we are all over 22 and are responsible.

thanks for your time,


p.s.- what gear should we bring?
extra clothes, first aid kit etc.. anything else?

If you have a portable helicopter you might want to bring it....
