The scenery that you told to suck it is pretty amazing.
Well worth the hike... tough cardio with an immediate reward at the end.
That reminds me. Was listening to the MMA Hour a few days ago and Kenny Florian was on and he mentioned that he only started taking his mma career seriously after he had a near death experience in Brazil. What was the near death experience? Falling during a mountain climb in Rio. What was the mountain? Pedra da Gavea, same mountain.
