YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK — Why enjoy America's tallest waterfall, Yosemite Falls, only from the bottom? A 7.2-mile round-trip hike will take you 2,700-feet skyward for a bird's-eye view of the spectacular plunge, seventh tallest in the world.

"That's why older hikers may want hiking poles for this expedition."

WHAT??

Note that 17 people have died on the trail to the top of Yosemite Falls, the vast majority of them from ignoring warnings. The two killed in the rockfall are not really deaths that should go in the mix.

From the article... I'd go with your memory.

Hey... whoever wrote it looked at summitpost for a quote.
They coulda came here and even got a peeecture of chick-on looking ova the edge.

And I'm launching a formal protest against the validity of the chick-on chuck-on poll.

What's good for the HSCs is good for the Chick-on.

Actually... for the best view of the waterfall... don't go to the top...
Just go where the trail heads due north and flattens out... that's the best view of Upper Yose.
