Ascent Trip Report

The bulk of the trail to Vernal Fall was a paved steady incline. Then it became carved steps. Very steep at this point. Bring a rain jacket for the moisture from the falls. We turned around about 150 feet below Nevada Fall due to impending darkness. A very strenuous climb with majestic rock walls on all sides, and two spectacular waterfalls.
