Well that rock is about 60 feet tall and is basically a sheer face it would be really hard to do what you are describing.
These expeditions were not 2 or 3 weekend warriors. They were hundreds of the kings finest soldiers, masons, riggers, carpenters, etc. They got
this done and much, much more. They were experienced and knew if they failed things would not go easy for them back in Spain. It was a different
world back then. The lust for riches combined with the threat of torture or death for failure is a pretty good motivator.
