    El viaje de regreso es bastante agotador. Pero vale la pena

    Going down is no problem, but don’t be deceived - coming back out is tough. The views along the way are spectacular. Once at Skeleton Point, go a few yards off to the left to get some glimpses of the Colorado River. Get an early start, especially on a hot day. And as everyone says, bring a LOT of water.

    An ill-advised way to measure physical conditioning and test high heat response is to undertake this short but difficult hike on an extreme heat warning day such as I did. The purpose was to determine what kind of trouble I’d get myself in should I attempt rim to river during peak afternoon heat. It served me well in that regard in that I learned to carry twice as many electrolytes than planned and to absolutely sit my bottom in the shade between 11-4, unless I really, really want to needlessly suffer and risk heat related issues. This trial run kept the following trail safe and pleasant. This hike itself is steep and the view at Skeleton Point is rewarding. If you’re a 44 year old male carrying 30 extra pounds of soft tissue and in moderate to decent cardiovascular shape, expect a grueling hike out.
