Question about Blue Connector trail at top of Johns Brook Valley

I am writing to see if anyone can tell me something about the Blue trail that connects the Phelps trail at the top of the Johns Brook valley to the Yellow trail that heads to the top of Haystack. The ADK trail guide (14th Ed, p. 43) describes the west end of that connection as a "nearly vertical pitch". My question is - how bad is it? I believe I have been on that trail before, but that was 41 years ago. Is this the best way up Haystack for a couple of 50-somethings closing in on the Forty-Six (my wife's first time and my second)? Thanks.
