Trail dry, no ice or snow, GPX spot on, loose crumbly dirt/rock on approach to ridge are like walking on marbles, poles would be great for descent. Similarly, gullies full of very loose rock, not so fun on descent. We did Gully #2 and has plenty of solid rock on sides for hands. In my opinion, Bells Traverse is much more enjoyable route of up for challenge - mostly b/c descent so not fun on this route. A little under 9-1/2 hours car-to-car at moderate pace.
