Anyone done the hike?
Is the last bit as steep and intimidating as it looks?
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.
