Very challenging even more so with the hordes of people using the trail. Regardless I enjoyed the hike up..,waterfalls were gorgeous. Unfortunately no view when I reached the Ridge trail.

Did this hike today with my dog. Long and steep, slippery in places but worth the view at the top. Everyone on the trail was friendly and courteous.

it's rather difficult and challenging if you're well into middle-age and in normal physical condition and not seasoned mountain hiker, but feasible still (youngsters have no problems whatsoever). On a wet day, be very careful as it gets very slippery just about everywhere as you're mostly going on boulders or rocks. Nonetheless, I was delighted we did it, it's very beautiful.
