Don't let the climb stop you, the view from the top is amazing! There's some shade and benches to relax on and enjoy the view and also a water fountain to refill your water bottle. Excellent, free spot to visit!

Well worth the steep climb to the top to get some of the best views of the city. Enjoy a coffee once you reach the top at the restaurant/cafe there.
