Great hike down to the Colorado River and the hot springs. We enjoyed the ropes and Boulder scrambling. Going on a Saturday morning, we did not enjoy the crowds on our way out. We encountered a couple of bottlenecks where we had to wait some time to get up an obstacle. The last rope had a line of almost 30 people to go up and maybe 20 people to go down. Waiting makes people make bad and scary choices, but luckily we didn't see anyone get hurt. Many people had inappropriate footwear which lead to a lot of slipping and sliding. I was very glad for my hiking shoes!

I enjoyed the beautiful weather and sites. Next time, I would do this hike during the week!
