Now that would be an adventure to climb compared to today's staircase. :)

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Thanks for the post Maverick! My grandfather was one from the CCC (if I recall correctly, seriously, I should know the acronym) that helped build the staircase. He loved talking about it, almost as much time talking about his time in the Navy during WWII.
