Our group is planning on trekking the TLG trail in 2 days in early March. There is a part called the "Sky Ladder" which I find very scary.
I hike almost every weekend in the local mountains and are reasonably fit.
I have been doing quite a bit of research on the TLG. I think I can do the trail other than the "Sky Ladder" part.
Here are my questions:
1. Can I skip the "Sky ladder" and still do the hike. Or is there an alternative route and we still can finish the trail?
2. for a normal fit person, how long does it take to do the "28 bends"? The reason I am asking is I want to get an idea of how long it is. The way I see it is if it is steep, we just have to take more breaks. Am I thinking right? Is it really that difficult?
3. what is the narrowest part of the trail? I read somewhere that the narrowest part is at least 3 meters, and somewhere said about 1 foot?
