Great tour! The view of the lake and the landscape is impressive. Collin, our guide, took great photos and helped us climb the rock with a lot of patience and a strong hand. Despite my fear of heights, I felt safe the whole time. We had enough time to enjoy the view from the mountain and to take a swim in the lake. Highly recommended!
