Well, my friend took about three steps toward that "path" out to the rock and nearly slid into the lake. Word of warning: that stuff that looks like loose scree...is loose scree. I would recommend against taking any steps in that direction without some serious climbing gear and a belay buddy ready to catch me.
Just a word of warning. I wouldn't have wanted to see my friend end up a 1700 feet down in the lake.
