The ruins are truly a site to see! When we went several years ago, you were still allowed to climb it. However, the steps were quite steep. My DH was planning to climb until we seen a teenage girl fall about 6-7 steps up. She fell and did not move. The "ambulance" was a pick-up truck (I think the truck was older than the ruins!) and planks of wood were used to pick her up and transport her. My DH decided not to climb!!
