Done Nalichi vaat 2 years back, it is always amazing. But not everyone's piece of cake. :p
Once you have mountain discipline anyone can do it. We did it in 11hrs for in first attempt (3hrs wasted in wrong climbing patch) and then 6hrs in second attempt.

Vinchu Kata is specimen of structure formed due to volcanic eruption and sudden cooling off. Much later it was fortified by Satwahan Kings and further strengthened in Shivaji's era. This was basically a guarding station of ancient trade routes connecting markets of Deccan plateau and coastal harbors.
