Not for the beginner. You will use your hands at times. 1st half is gentle, then 2nd half is challenging after Syphon Draw. The amazing view will be worth the 2 hour strenuous climb! Loved it.

Life changing, and worth the workout! Views unlike any other. Clear, crisp, cool air at the top. Only a few shady zones that are fun to spend the day at. Great people up there too

Challenging yet rewarding trail. Stay to the left after the basin during the ascent. Look for white or blue paint to mark the trail. My wife and I made the summit in approximately 3 hrs from the parking lot.

Favorite hike yet. Definitely strenuous, lots of climbing.

Insane hike. Was amazing got technical at some parts and got turned around a little with the unmarked trail. Did this in 105 degree weather and I didn't have an issue, just brought enough water! Views are amazing. It's a full day of hiking so be ready!

Beautiful!! Pretty difficult for night hiking but great sitting areas, shade, views and moderate inclines sure to give you an enjoyable and worthwhile day!

Great hike. Not too much traffic in August because it's very hot! Go early, leave early
