  • Nice place...easy to climb up in 20 min because of the stairs! The view is great! BUT at the top a lot of electric cables lay on the ground. Looks not that save
  • Easy climb, only takes 10-15 minutes to get to the top via the steps. Nice romantic spot to watch the sunset.
  • Quite an exercise to get to the top, but the view is worth it.
