Really cold day, I started at around 2 from Inspiration Point.  Trail was pretty clear and non technical, views were amazing.  Wet spots from the night before.  I wore a 20ish lb pack, definitely could have done without it, all I would have needed is a 500ml bottle and a couple of gels.

I ran alone and only used what I had in my pack.  Took some video, but they need editing.

It's pretty well trafficked but I wouldn't have done it without bear spray.  The north rim trail between upper and lower falls was roped off so I had to detour onto the roads.  For me, I think sub-2 hour is doable.  Real runners might be able to tackle it in 90 minutes.
