This was my first overnight backpacking trip. I probably should have had more experience to do this, but I made it. As the previous post suggested, rope does come in handy. We were able to lower our pack to the floor at the crack and also used it to climb out. We were able to climb free of the extra weight of our packs, and then pull them up point to point. We camped overnight and made 1 1/2 days out of it. Wear hiking shoes for the land part and sandals or water shoes for in the creek. I'm not sure how much the creek depth changes but you could not keep your feet dry in the season we went. There are two pit toilets along the trail. Very much to see... arches, other unique rock formations, wildflowers, native art, small water falls.
