Yosemite Falls Trail – the SCARY part (2015)

Yosemite Falls Trail – the SCARY part (2015)

Enjoy uncut GoPro Head Strap footage of the SCARY part of Yosemite Falls Trail, the six-minute descent to the Upper Fall Overlook (starts at 02:00). If you have acrophobia, this trail might not be for you. I overcame my fears four times now, I think that’s enough. While there wasn’t much water falling during another California drought, the grueling 2700′ climb and descent was still every bit as spectacular. Along on this hike for the first time were my Danish cousins Mads and Tine, and Mads’s daughter Anna. Wife Carol is the gal I’m following down to the overlook. If you like this video, feel free to click on my name above to visit my channel to browse the many other videos there. I have a wide variety of topics, something else might interest you, perhaps Half Dome? Subscribers welcome. Thanks kindly. Our half dome hike is an interesting view as well at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbntjU813bA

    Thanks for not having loud pounding drumbeats, screeching electric guitars and drunken “singers” like so many other Youtube travel videos assault us with!

    Cool view. Not that scary. You people are soft. Stay in California

  8. Dolphin Dream on February 9, 2020 at 11:03 am

    Gorgeous video of a gorgeous place! I’m afraid this video is as close as I’m ever going to get to the top of the falls, tho.

  9. Gary Host on February 9, 2020 at 11:04 am

    Imagine the men who put those handrails in

  10. Troy Osborne on February 9, 2020 at 11:08 am

    Yes, I want to go!

  11. Kelvin SC Tan on February 9, 2020 at 11:09 am

    When ascending or decending bare mountain, u got to watch yr every steps. If u slip near a cliff, that will be RIP.

  12. james bont on February 9, 2020 at 11:09 am

  13. Mark W. on February 9, 2020 at 11:09 am

    Uh uh…..don’t be trying to grab the back of my backpack when I’m on the edge of a cliff

  14. Clare Wall on February 9, 2020 at 11:13 am

    Wow, thanks for sharing this! Looks way too scary….

  15. Steven S on February 9, 2020 at 11:14 am

    The "Pinnacle Wall Goat Trail" in Glacier National Park makes this video look like a cakewalk…also can be viewed on Youtube.

  16. bullymili on February 9, 2020 at 11:15 am

    Thank you for sharing.

  17. Francisco Quintero on February 9, 2020 at 11:17 am

    Thanks for showing. Now I don’t need to go LMAO

  18. Paul Barrera on February 9, 2020 at 11:20 am

    Where is the scary part?

  19. Lars Rodbok on February 9, 2020 at 11:21 am

    My first glimpse of Yosemite Falls was when a massive landslide occurred on the trail. I had driven in late the previous night, only to see/hear the slide. I asked my friend “Does this happen often?”. That was 1980. https://www.sfchronicle.com/chronicle_vault/article/Chronicle-Covers-The-deadly-Yosemite-rock-slide-10592494.php

  20. Humble &kind on February 9, 2020 at 11:22 am

    Scary, I could never do it

  21. DREWSKI LOVE on February 9, 2020 at 11:22 am

    Beautiful, but kinda scary at the same time!

  22. Sparky Puddins on February 9, 2020 at 11:23 am

    I’ve been telling my son for years that we would hike that trail. We finally did last summer. I’m almost 60, and I left the 20 and 23 year olds in the dust. But don’t try it unless you are in good shape, or you will be hurt’n for certain. And take lots of water.

  23. J. Reynolds on February 9, 2020 at 11:24 am

    This is great! Now I never have to do this. Works for me.

  24. Steven D. Bennett on February 9, 2020 at 11:25 am

    I’ve seen people come up from Fresno hiking in dress shoes. Be smart. Stay home.

  25. jamesbachreeves on February 9, 2020 at 11:26 am

    My palms are drenched.

  26. Mic Micson on February 9, 2020 at 11:28 am

    It reminds me of of Inca steps in Cusco, Peru.

  27. Chad Sanborn on February 9, 2020 at 11:29 am

    I hiked Angels Landing this year. This is nothing compared to that

  28. kathykn11 on February 9, 2020 at 11:31 am

    oh my God, so scary

  29. Ray Morley on February 9, 2020 at 11:32 am

    never in a million years

  30. Sniper Logic on February 9, 2020 at 11:34 am

    NOPE NOPE NOPE! NOT TODAY! How about NEVER? How’s that? That sound ok? That’ll work won’t it? NEVER’s good for me! I like the way that sounds…’NOPE NEVER’! Sounds like….uh…like LONG LIFE! NOPE NEVER=LONG LIFE! That fits good; a real good mesh there! :^)

  31. Matt Harding on February 9, 2020 at 11:37 am

    Beautiful scenery, love high places like that

  32. BENJIR2D2 on February 9, 2020 at 11:38 am

    Can I have those 9 minutes back please?

  33. Sleeper jeep Sleeper jeep on February 9, 2020 at 11:39 am

    Youd think it being a park their would be hand rails.i mean shit

  34. leavesfalldown on February 9, 2020 at 11:40 am

    If I get a chance to listen to some music when on my hiking trips I always choose music like Delta Parole or Guns N Roses, the rawness is the best with nature.

  35. gezen insan on February 9, 2020 at 11:43 am

    I fell down 10 times while watching this. A nightmare for a person has fobia of heightm

  36. J. Reynolds on February 9, 2020 at 11:45 am

    The only way I could enjoy this is if I was tethered to a tree or rock.

  37. Velda Wells on February 9, 2020 at 11:45 am

    Looks like an amazing hike/climb. Wonderful footages. Stunning scenery. Looks like a tough walk. We’ll done to all! Now on my bucket list. Thank you

  38. jknuttel on February 9, 2020 at 11:46 am

    A wonderful video with some spectacular scenery. However, at age 62, with fallen arches, bowed legs, and arthritic knees, and having broken both feet in years past, plus surviving a quadruple heart bypass and a hip operation (to relieve an infection), I think watching this video is the closest I will ever get to actually doing it.

  39. Sailing Aeolus on February 9, 2020 at 11:47 am

    I’m with the woman. Careful steps, stay away from the edge, don’t look down.

  40. zacan2013 on February 9, 2020 at 11:50 am

    wow, thanks for this, magnificent part of the world, I like the style of your little hiking group, steady and careful, the way I like it!

  41. Sleeper jeep Sleeper jeep on February 9, 2020 at 11:51 am

    Hope knowbodys shoes are untied

  42. Jeroen Jansen on February 9, 2020 at 11:53 am

    Nice hike but where is the scary part?

  43. Mike McCulloch on February 9, 2020 at 11:53 am

    You’re a brave group. I would have really liked to have seen the camera pan around a lot.

  44. Cpt Price141 on February 9, 2020 at 11:54 am

    Bravo six going dark

  45. Inge Potzuweit on February 9, 2020 at 11:54 am

    no way….getting dizzy just watching….I likes flat land…LOL

  46. thomas on February 9, 2020 at 11:55 am

    What a neet trail. But must be hot.

  47. Nuggi Nuss Lover on February 9, 2020 at 11:56 am

    I don’t get this comment section, everybody is acting like this is the scariest shit ever, but it’s just an average hike? Not sure what’s going on here

  48. Jimmy Spillane on February 9, 2020 at 11:57 am

    Yosemite is scary for real, I hiked clouds rest when we had to go on all fours. Then Half Dome when there were only posts and no cords, I was only a 12 year old boy scout, I said HELL NO Half Way up and bitched out but at least I didn’t fall 8000 feet and end up a human pancake.

  49. Shauna Rock on February 9, 2020 at 11:59 am

    How gorgeous! Thank you brave people!I look at the live cam often. Seems like a safer walkway should be built, I mean look at the Chinese National Parks, safe and even higher.

  50. Bill Chisholm on February 9, 2020 at 11:59 am

    Why walk on the edge like that ..all it takes is to stumble a bit lose your balance and over the side you go to a certain death ..hundreds of feet of falling onto nothing but granite and you don’t get any do over, it’s just not worth the extra 10 feet closer you get for the better view ,its so easy to stumble on all the uneven rock formations . I can’t even imagine what is going through their minds when they realize they are going over the cliff to hit the bottom and it’s a long drop so you have a bit of time knowing your dead in a matter of seconds wow crazy. Just stay back on a level spot and be safe not stupid ..
