Oh, well in that case I take it all back. It's obviously a piece of piss getting cranes and coasters to the top of mountains... as long as you're not starting from sea level. 🙄
Also, don't forget that not starting from sea level means that snow has zero effect on traction. Essentially just the same as building the coaster at a rest stop on the highway.

;)

The height difference between the lift entrance and the pull out is so goofy looking I love it haha, but what a view!

It looks great, but I almost feel it’d work better without the beyond-vertical drop, or even a normally-inclined one to make the most of the view. I guess you can contemplate the view on the lift up at least before all hell breaks loose :D

Glad to finally see this thing go vertical! It really snuck up. They have a long way to go though. I'm curious when they expect this to open.

So I think that this structure supporting the lift hill and approaching track is pretty cool, totally wasn't seen in the NoLimits renders;

It allows easy access to the mechanics for maintenance, and is probably easier to work with than catwalks and coaster supports on that bit of terrain. Judging by that photo in March, this was also the first part of the coaster to go up. Did not notice it until now;
