Guidelines for Pilgrims
- Eat a hearty, but not heavy, meal and sleep a while before starting
- A method to make the climb easier is to go up (or down) the steps
side ways, walking across the steps following an alternative diagonal
- Don't climb up too fast, or you just might run out on all the energy that you
need to come down.
- Get ample
rest while you are at the top before you start climbing down.
- Finally, be extra careful that you don't fall backwards during
the climb down, due to the unsteadiness in your knee joints.
