Crowded! About 40 people coming down at about 6:30, and 20 going up. VERY rocky, yet most had sneakers, no socks, carrying dogs, no water, no jacket (cold up top), everyone in a blinding rush, unbelievable! An orthopedic surgeon's dream. Go late, bring a head lamp and trekking poles, have a beautiful and relaxing walk down, be careful, there are some fairly treacherous rocky areas covered in sand.
