Sorry to say I did not make it to the top. KIds were grumbling and my knees were knocking. Views at almost the top were well worth the pain. The people were all friendly and from all over the world. This was a strenous hike for me. I guess the five mile run at dawn was too much for me. This is a must do hike!!!!!!!
Excellent hike with a wide variety of terrain and contrasts to enjoy on the way! The signs say prepare for 6-8 hours round trip, but we spent an hour on top for lunch, stopped often to pick berries, and it took us exactly 5. Prepare for cool weather and a little wind, and bring your water filter!
As glorious as the other reviewers have said, with one exception - the number of hikers. There were many hikers on this trail, occasionally causing grid lock at the rock pitches. It reminded me of Flattop.
