After you've ascented, and walked down the northeast side, there's a long, 5 km flat walk back to the trailhead. It's still worth it to circle the mountain rather than just go up and down, as there are interesting views on the northeast side as you head down, and canyon to the east.
Bring water, as there are no sources of water along the trail.
