This route is steep. Mostly class 3 with some class 4 and easy class 5 sprinkled in. This would be a very difficult downclimb. I would not recommend it as a descent path. I'm a fast hiker and this route took me nearly 4 hours due to the physical demands and the tricky route finding. Other than that, it's an absolutely stunning route.
Encountered a few drunken climbers/campers at Lisa Falls early Sunday morning. The route description on Summitpost was pretty good. I had a few minor detours but overall I was able to follow everything. I missed the ~5.7 crux or simply got through it without much difficult? Made it up to Broad Fork West Twin and then actually did the Cottonwood Traverse all the way to Monte Cristo/Mt Superior and descended to Cardiaff Pass/Alta. It was good starting at Lisa Falls because since I was solo I just rode my bike down Little Cottonwood Canyon to my car.
