It was a little bit hard in the final section of the summit but the feeling on the top was really cool!

Route Climbed: standard trail w/ cables Date Climbed: July 2001  Sucess!

Crazy how many people climb this mountain. The cables can be very dangerous yet all types and abilities do it. The MOST people I have ever seen hiking a mountain with me that day: hundreds! Miserable 100 degree F day, long, blah trail. Very much appreciated water at the 2 falls. Fun but careful climbing up the 45 degree slab slope for 400 feet. Good views from top. Lots of people sun tanning.

Route Climbed: Many Ways Date Climbed: September 1, 1996

Done this several times- cables, trail run, climb. The most memorable was coming over from Cloud's Rest (backpack) or the runout on Snake

Route Climbed: Cables Date Climbed: May 30, 2004  Sucess!

Absolutely amazing views from the top! The cables were the easiest part of the whole climb the hard part was getting to them. It was a very, very long day of hiking we started at 5:00am in Curry Village. Making the whole hike approximately 19.5 miles. Great hike though, I would go back and do it in a heartbeat!

Route Climbed: Snake Dike and Cables Date Climbed: Sept 1997 and June 1999  Sucess!

Did the cables hike with my wife in 97. The best hike I have done in the world.

In 99 I lead my climbing partner and his brother up Snake Dike. Felt like I was flying runout 100 feet in a strong wind.

Went back for second annual trip. Same as last time - perfect conditions. Only difference was I woke up a little late and then had to come down that last mile or so in the dark (had a headlamp w/me of course).

This was my first "adventurous" hike and I loved it! We had amazing weather, not a thunder bumper on the horizon.

Route Climbed: Snake Dike Date Climbed: September 13, 2001  Sucess!

Pretty uneventful. Camped in little Yosemite Valley so approach wasn't bad, first pitch was crux, the rest a cruise and 4th class marathon on top. While descending the cables we learned of the events of 9/11 and were in utter disbelief. We hoofed it to camp and got to Yosemite Valley proper, 6 miles, full packs and racks, in 45 minutes!

Classic route. Unfortunately the Valley was smoky, so the views weren't as stellar as they could be. That was one loooong day.
