That way, you could have time to spend at Ribbon Falls on your way to Cottonwood, and you could see Roaring Sp. on your way to the N. Rim and not be rushed. (Believe me, when you "duck into" Ribbon Falls, you will want to have at least a little time to spend there!) Don't underestimate the difficulty of the NK- the last couple of miles, when you are already tired, are tough and at an elevation that will affect your speed.
