I've seen this before, but I don't quite get how Mt LeConte makes it on this list. Maybe if it's icy out, but there's really not one part that even seems dangerous.

Seems like the Cables Route on Half Dome should be on there.

Why, because of the people? It's objectively easy.

What qualifies as a "hike"? Less than 3rd class?

I bet there's some Cambodian mine fields that are pretty dangerous to go hiking around...
or how about hiking through Tijuana wearing a Rolex and pair of Oakley's. Sketchy.

most of the mountains posted on summitpost have hiking routes that are substantially more 'dangerous' than these silly videos.

The Alum Cave squirrels are pretty aggressive, that might be an objective danger we haven't considered.
