I was taught it is fairly easy like 75% of the way up but getting to the actual top is quite hard. Never tried though, so I have no real idea.

Now it is, but it has probably been weathered down substantially since the ancient Greeks. just a guess.

Erosion on a level that would noticibly effect the climb would take millions of years.

There were legends that said:

The last man who tried was struck down by Zeus for his arrogance

The gods feared man because they knew one day an army of men would storm olympus and kill the gods

I just love Greek mythology just cause of how ****** bonkers it is. Like how Zeus had a headache so Athena or someone else decided to hit him with an axe and then two new gods popped out of his split open head.

How about the origin of the Minotaur?
Poseidon made this chick fall in love with a bull, so it raped her and 9 months later, out pops a half-bull freak of nature.

You think these stories are ****** up? Hera got tired of Zeus's manwhore ass having affairs, but she's the goddes of married women and couldn't cheat. She asked a gardening god to help. He gave her a ******* MAGICAL CABBAGE. She used it to get herself knocked up, and Hephaestus was born. He came out to be the only ugly god, and Hera chucked his ass of Mount Olympus.

Oh you don't even know, man. Dionysus happened when Zeus's horny old crusty ass had sex with yet another mortal woman. Hera got pissed (as always) and killed the girl when she was 3 months pregnant. Zeus wanted to save the baby, so he took the fetus out of the dea woman and sewed it to his thigh. After twenty something years, Dionysus freed himself. Boom, the god of wine and parties.

Actually the story is that Zeus had sex with a woman named Metis and she became pregnant, but Zeus saw an oracle that told him that her first child would be a girl but the second would overthrow him so Zeus swallowed Metis completely . After a while Zeus got a headache so Hephaestus, god of metalworking split his head open and Athena was born, as an adult and fully armoured

This would be grand if not for one major issue:

Their gods were INCREDIBLY SPITEFUL ASSHOLES! They turned women into spiders if they could sew better than them. They would turn you into grass just because they felt like it. They would kidnap your girl, rape her constantly, and then smite the **** out of you just because you dared complain that they were raping the ever loving **** out of your girl.

Now tell me that these are the kind of people you want to go knocking on their door for no good god damned reason. There's a reason no one dared tried to climb Mount Olympus and it wasn't because they were lazy.

It may be a mountain, but you don't need any climbing skills to get up. It's mostly just a full-day hike uphill.

I actually did once. I was 13 at the time. So no, there isn't much climbing involved. Just walking.

You say that, but humans have done ridiculous **** for even less before.

We went to the moon for ***** and gigs, along with the bragging rights.
People climb mount Everest for sport.
We dive to the deepest trenches just to find the most retarded looking fish.

I'm pretty sure a little hike to check if your gods are home isn't too daunting of a task.

We do all that **** now a days because we have technology, did the greeks have technology to go to space? Or venture the deep ocean? They did not even have the proper **** or even know how to survive going up the mountain.

You ******* twat, what the ****? It was a mountain. A ******* giant ass mountain. Anyone that tried to climb it was killed by the gods. The funny thing here is, this bitch is saying something about laziness, but they couldn't even bother to check their facts.
