Approximately 9,000’ EG.
If you haven’t done extremely hard hikes (16 hrs+), don’t attempt this.
There is no sweep.

I plan to start at 4AM from the Bright Angel Lodge and hope to complete it in 18-20 hrs.

There may still be snow/ice at the north rim at this time of year.
People cry on this hike.
People throw-up on this hike.
