BKiser90Great Views of the Valley  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2017


Started from Big Oak Flat Road and hit El Cap on the way. The views from the top were gorgeous! Definitely some of the best views of the valley. Descended via the Falls Trail. Had to hike through a lake at one point because of all the snowmelt.

Fruitstripe and I went up Yosemite Falls trail (Dry). Stayed one night on top. Simply amazing. Then it rained hard. Yosemite Falls was no longer dry. Watch your step coming down this in the rain.

Solo hike during a gorgeous spring morning. Saw a bob cat on the switchbacks coming up and a total of 10 people all day - that is, until coming down. Busy trail to the waterfall in the afternoon! Beautiful ridge line hiking and couldn't help but think "wow, this area started it all - the entire national park system." If it wasn't for the tourist trap in the valley, could see myself coming back more often.

Went up Yosemite Falls trail and after making a side visit to Yosemite Point came back over to get Eagle Peak then continued on to El Capitan before descending back down the Falls trail. Great day! Trip report is HERE.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2012


Started as part of my hike to El Capitan via the Upper Falls. It was 95 degrees plus. The start of the hike totally destroys you. I've never hiked so slow... The signs do not match maps. Hiked with a guy named Brian from the second junction after the Upper Falls.
Great views!

Perfect fall day. Views from the top are as good as it gets. Saw a bear on the way up and another on the way down near Columbia Rock. The falls were flowing again after the recent storms. I highly recommend this hike.

Date Climbed: Feb 10, 1973


About one foot of fresh snow on the trail from the top of the falls to the summit. Extremely clear view with the recent storm passing and no crowds in the Valley.
Very memorable overnight outing camped out near the top of the falls.

Met a guy from Russia, Dimitri, who did Telescope Peak from Hanupah Canyon in one day on the way down from Eagle. That's 11,000 ft.! Maybe he embellished the story a little.

Date Climbed: Nov 11, 2007


Climbed this as an addition to the upper falls trail. Had trouble deciding whether to hit North Dome, El Cap or this, but I chose Eagle Peak due to the encroaching nightfall. Didn't see much due to THICK fog, but had a great time on the way down as the fog left the valley.

A steep climb up past the falls, with a nice scramble to finish. Well worth skipping El Cap.
