This hike is not beginner friendly, it involves scrambling (use of your hands) and a lot of loose scree, sometimes with exposure. The elevation gain is also significant especially during the first third of the route. That said, if you have some experience with Arizona peaks under your belt it is a great hike, that involves some route-finding (mostly following game trails) and great views over the area. It took our group 4 hours to complete the loop in Jan 2016.
