The most crowded hike I've ever been on - I would never go near it on a weekend, in good weather during summer again. Chaos, with all the chains and long hold ups to get on the chains and ladder to the summit, people getting stuck near the top, having to help people carry their kids down the steepest part because they couldn't manage it themselves, people having attacks of vertigo. More fatiguing than a hike twice as long and twice as hard. Apart from that it's a great half day out.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
