Everybody will tell you that they died about three times during the crossing. Well most people do. When your fit you'll be doing it in about 6-7 hours if not it will take you about 8-9 hours. The devil's staircase is a bitch, but you'll get there!!! The haven't called it Mount Doom in Lord of the Rings without a reason!?! It is well worth the trip and after finishing it you'll be so proud of yourself. I would do it again if I had the change!
