route_description

Up using the Mist Trail and down via the John Muir trail. The John Muir Trail adds some distance (24.4 vs 22.5) but is less steep and offers a good view of the Nevada fall.

Beautiful summer day crystal clear, the California fires did not yet reach Yosemite on the day of the hike.

We applied for a permit 2 days prior the hike and got lucky! The views are magnificient and we were almost alone in the Valley at that time of the day and for most of the hike until we reached the cables. A few very slow hikers were creating a traffic jam on the cable route. We were around 20 at the top.
If you want gloves you have to bring your own the pile at the bottom of the cable has been removed by the rangers. We did not use any and it was fine. The rock is a bit polished but not to bad if you have good soles.
