You have about 10 ...

    ... this had hundreds of steep steps, each time you thought you had finished it you turned a corner and saw more going into the distance. After about 1 hour of stairs though you were at the base of Mount Doom and just beside a crater (creatively called the south crater), the result of a previous eruption.
