    the title certainly says it all. Just how tough of a climb is it?

    Well just getting to the base of the stairs is difficult because there is a guard on duty 18 hours a day. It's against the law to access them.

    So, you have to go around 2am, hike to the base of the stairs and hope that no guards are there. (I was turned away 2 times before my successful 3rd try)

    The stairs consist of nearly 4,000 steps, and in some places is completely vertical, turning into a type of ladder rather than stairs.

    But every bit of it is worth it, especially when you come back down and the sun is rising over the Ocean. It's such a beautiful place.
