    I really enjoyed this. Much of the hike is moderate and uneventful, but the lengthy boulder scrambling makes it amazing. I drove from Philly and stayed in a hotel the night before so that I could make a 6am start. I would not recommend doing it any other way, and Ill explain why. Mountain time is the time for me to flush life's anxieties out of my head. I did it solely for this reason knowing that the crowds get ridiculous here on a weekend. And I was by myself for 90% of the trip. And the unexpected and most wonderful part of this, was that the rock scramble is fairly technical. With the crowds in a constant bottleneck through the obstacles, you would just be following the masses through a predetermined route. Doing it alone, made me have to identify, often by trial and error, what was the best/only way to get to the next step. As someone who is working to overcome a fear of heights, it was so much more satisfying to overcome each challenge by myself without following, having advice, or even having help available. Views are amazing and plentiful. Bugs were nonexistent this day, and the weather is perfect this time of year. Only recommendation I give is definitely have boots with great grip, as there is often no stable footing and grip is all you have; and lightweight gloves with some grip in the palms were very helpful as well with the scramble. I promise you won't be disappointed with this climb.
