Hey everybody,

"The Entire :-o Mountain Climb" will start at the Fuji Sengen Jinja at 4p. It will take us about 21 hours from start to finish (22 if we walk around the crater).  

4p-8:30       Bottom to Sato Goya 5th Station
8:30-9:30    Rest at Sato Goya 5th station to acclimate
9:30-4:30    5th Station to Top (yes, with breaks )
4:30-6a       Enjoy Goraiko and the rapture of being alive
6-7             Walk around crater if y'all are interested
7-2p           Descend

I have done this climb 15 times. You should bring: two liters of water, a warm jacket, a dry shirt, winter hat, gloves, flashlight, power bars/gels and maybe a rain jacket.

I am interested in walking around the crater at the top, if others are interested. The view from the top of the old weather station is likely to blow your mind.

According to local outdoors-man Earl Redbeard: The Lower Yoshidaguchi Climbing Trail is an experience not to be missed. 90% of so-called “Mt. Fuji Climbers” start their journey with the last 6km to the summit, bypassing the greater part of the mountain. This leaves the lower 12km free from crowds and nonsense, and with the exception of the monkey statues, remains true to what the pilgrims of days long past experienced when they climbed the perfect slope of Mt. Fuji.

Here's his article about climbing Fuji from the bottom:
