I did this several years ago. The trail was in extremely poor condition and very hard to follow due to the excessive deadfall. Then near the top I see all kinds of people young and old coming down and they turn left at the section 3 Lake trail jxn. The trail from section 3 Lake is much nicer even in its worst condition infinitely better than the Conrad Meadows trail Plus it's half the distance with 3000 feet less vertical. For the same views would recommend the section 3 Lake trailhead. If you want a 14 mile route with 4,000 ft vertical that will challenge your route finding ability through a maze of dead fall and poorly marked trail then go for it
