Read a lot of reviews/triplogs on this hike (Thanks HikeAZ!). Trail traffic was not as heavy as expected, we did have to exercise patience on this hike and wait for people to reach benches where they could stop. I thought the benches were well placed. Trail was well mainainted and not as slick as I expected it to be. We thought we reached the top only to see the true summit on the other side. Did not know there was a trail going to the true summit, we ended up approaching it from the other side which had more (though easy) scrambling. Surprised by how solid the rock at the top felt. The NGS seal was easy to spot, not sure why there was a drilled hole beside it. Disappointing to see the litter at the top. Spent about 5 minutes on the summit to savor the 360 views of the city.
