This was one of the most amazing things I've done in awhile. Go early and beat the rush because once more people are on the trail it gets a little difficult and slightly more hairy. The initial climb makes for some beautiful views and gets the lungs warmed up. Once at the split in the trail you realize wow I'm about to do what? It looks very intimidating and it it should be. I saw many teens and kids on the chain portion of this hike and in my opinion they have no business being there. As an avid hiker and trail runner I know all to well the joys of taking nasty falls. The only difference this fall is going to kill you. Kudos to those that go on to do the hike but be smart, use the chains, don't get over confident, and please don't horse play. The kids behind us were racing each other from the top down, throwing snow balls along the way and making it rather stressful for myself when they would come up rather quickly behind me. Have common courtesy that others may not feel as comfortable as you and may take little longer ascending/descending. It's a must do and I plan on returning during warmer months to do it again.
