The steep incline

There was no other way to the top. The steps on the trail leading to the top of Kings Mountain had been put in place. Each one was a wooden log or block set across the trail. Because it is steep the steps are close together. There are some places provided to rest at a couple of the switchbacks. If someone is in relatively good physical condition, it’s not such a challenge. It’s just tiring. On the way back down, I’ve passed Cub Scout troops climbing those stairs, and older people as well. The point is this; there’s no other way to get to the top. This is the way; you can’t get to the top except by this path. At no time did I ever hear someone say, “This isn’t fair”, or “This is too limiting”, or “There should be another way”, or “I’ll find my own way.” Everyone who gets to the top of Kings Mountain gets there by this pathway.
