We did this hike in a group of 7 ranging from 10 to 60 years old. This took us 8 hours that is including a 1.5 hour lunch break at the lake and some cliff jumping into the lake.
We didn’t find the incline to be very difficult at all the cable, cave and ladder just needed to have caution, everyone in our group did very well.
We had a great time jumping off the cliffs at the top! We all packed 2 L of water and that seemed fine for our group.
We found that by the time we were half way down the kids were pretty tired but once we took their packs they were good to go to the bottom.
This was a fun hike but it is a long one.
I would not consider this a technical hike but the length could be difficult for some people.
