Gorgeous Hike. One of the most challenging that I have done. I'm 5'3″ and it was helpful to go with taller people because of the climbing and reaching to grab holds. It was a lot of climbing and hoisting my body up and down rocks. I stepped on my guy friend's shoulder once on the way down because I couldn't reach anything. Maybe 2/3 of the hike was a vertical ascent of climbing. I had a hard time catching my breath at times because we were moving fast.   The trail was more crowded than I expected. I did see some people turning around as we came back down. Would be cool to tent camp up there overnight. Couple of my friends have done that and said it was awesome to see the sunrise.
