    If you want to make it to the top of the mountain make sure you aren't scared of heights. The back half of the trail is exposed rock scrambling in very cold weather. I experienced ICY CLIFFS as well as altitude sickness (home is 1000ft above SL) .You'll need to be on the trail no later than 0400. Bring water, the altitude dehydrates you.

    I prefer very hard hikes, I like the challenge. Make sure you go DOWN south kaibab and up Bright Angel trail. I made that mistake and barely made it out.

    BE WARNED, 19/M/220lbs, Your average weight lifter. Hasn't hiked since 15.
    1.I put myself in a really bad spot on this hike, i started at 5pm(my first mistake), I didn't bring enough water(2nd mistake), and i summited it to try and impress this beautiful girl(3rd mistake).
    2. Made it to the top through great effort, didn't realize that the sun was going down, didn't have a flashlight, was delirious from lack of water/heat/exhaustion.
    HOWEVER; this hike has reignited my passion for the outdoors and the mountains, ill be returning on the 8th, with gear......
