This was the most challenging hike I’ve ever done to be honest. Rewarding when you climb 4 miles straight up switch backs the second day. We did the first stretch down and over and slept in the little oasis hostel at the bottom of the canyon. That pool was incredibly rewarding. Definitely remember a headlamp and bandaids for blisters. Also, look out for condors!
