Started this hike about an hour after sunrise. Trail at this early time wasn't too busy. Coming back was a different story as most of the crowds had begun to arrive. Going was slow, as trail was made up of lots of loose larger rocks, larger rocks to step up/down/over, smoother rock sections that required climbing on all 4s (sometimes without cables present). Multiple sections required me to sit and scamper up/down. Full body workout. Definitely exposed in multiple places which wasn't enjoyable. Overall views were beautiful and if you were paying attention, you could hear and see the trains go by in the distance. Hard trail, glad this one is done.
