I counted every stair in the open portion.  923 each way! 366 up and 557 down on the way in.  If anyone really cares I logged everything.  "EE" is emergency exit.  "FEE" is fake emergency exit, small crosspath that looks like the real ones.

I don't believe you are allowed to go further even if the trees have orange ribbons on them.  The hike will be less challenging when the path is reconnected.
