I only made it to the point where the chains begin (0.5 miles from the end). The good news is that you already get a great view from that point. I tried to go further but, after a few minutes, I realized that it was just going to be too frightening for me so I turned back. I did the hike in early September and, at that time of the year, I would definitely advise doing the hike very early in the morning (we took the first shuttle into the park) for two reasons : 1) The heat is not present early in the morning, 2) There are fewer people. Especially for my companions who did go all the way, it was very useful to be there early before the trail gets full of hikers which makes a tough trail even more difficult.
