It was awesome
I'm not sure why this hike is labeled as "hard". Do NOT let that bother you, it is actually really easy. I saw plenty of people carrying their kids, and some people even dressed with normal everyday clothing, no active swagger! The only rough part is the slick-rock after the first half mile, that will slow you down a bit but nothing too bad. The arch is spectacular! As you reach the rock ledge there is a rock wall that blocks the view to the arch, until it ends and then you are exposed to a breath taking sight!
Peek-a-boo and Spooky are as everyone describes...very beautiful and fun to do. Both have narrow spots that require minimum girth, i.e. take your pack and chest mounted GoPro off. My recommendation is to do Peek-a-boo first and come down through Spooky. This makes the technical obstacles more manageable. Markers for the slots are minimum at best so if you are new to the area, study the guides to know how to find the entrances...or ask one of the dozens of other people that will be there. We did not do Brimstone because we did not know where to go after exiting Spooky...bummer!
