Anyone done the hike?

Is the last bit as steep and intimidating as it looks?

:shock:

It isn't a bad hike -- none of the "touristy" hikes in Yosemite are bad at all. As I recall, the trail is well used and well maintained. The last bit is a bit steep, but I wouldn't be intimidated by it. If you are in reasonably good shape, you should be fine. That being said, it gets up to a few thousand feet, so if you are not used to the elevation, it might be a bit rough.

Yes, the altitude does worry me a bit, but I'm reasonably fit...did my first marathon last year at Loch Ness and hope to run again this year.

And I've hiked up the Franz Josef Glacier in NZ so that should stand me in good stead for steepness if not altitude.

Unfortunately the highest I can go here is just over 3000ft but I intend to give Half Dome a go as long as the conditions allow it.

Cheers

You should be fine. It is a fairly easy hike, really.

Oh, I also came to San Francisco not so long ago. Great city. So many delicious things that are not sold in other countries. Take at least some juice for example

I live in san francisco. And despite the political situation, the city is really excellent. And what about delicious things. I often order myself best cold pressed juices just as it turned out it can only be bought on the San Francisco area. This juice reminded me it
