Very crowded trail and steep. Very pretty rock formations and valleys. Signs all over warning people to stay on the trail, and right past the first sign a hiker climbing up 50’ on a cliff for a photo. No wonder there are so many rescues and deaths. In addition hikers with no food or water and in tennis shoes, (not trail running shoes) and then the trail runners which i would not try, because one wrong step and you will be seriously injured or worse. It was worth doing once, however i won’t go back except to guide a close friend up. I climbed in Washington State and Alaska for 39 years on steep ice and snow and rock. Because of my background and being a member for several years in mountain rescue, i carry more then most and will survive if something happened.

I am just not used to the modern day hiker and trail runners that go ultra light. What i observed is incredible physical conditioning in many on this mountain.
