Whew what a set of stairs Date Climbed: May 15, 2006
Thought I was in good shape and got educated in the truth. This was a beautiful hike but definitely start early and train for the continuous uphill walking. I will always remember the feeling of exhausted thighs when I reached the top. Well worth it.
A group of 7 from our camp made this charge up Yosemite Falls in 3 hours. We temporarily missed the correct trail at the TH, but it turned out well because we spotted a bear in the process. Once we hit the trail we made good progress to the top. We were paced by my 7-year-old son. Of course, unlike the rest of us, he only had to haul his 45-pound carcass to the top! I was so proud of him for hiking strong to the top. We took plenty of pictures and swam in the creek above the bridge (where it wasn't dangerous). Great day. Great hike.
