    My husband and I did this hike last summer in early July and it is frankly the most difficult and most spectacular hike we have done. And he has done Half Dome twice. We continued on from the upper Falls to North Dome. It is about 4 additional miles but totally worth it. We started at 8 and hit the valley floor again at 4:30. The views are unmatched by anything other than Clouds Rest. If you are doing this hike in the summer, start early. The trail is mostly exposed to the sun and it gets just brutally hot. Bring a water pump so you can refill at the top and drink plenty of water. I am 5'1" and I drank 5 liters to give you an idea. Bring DEET as there are quite a few mosquitos. Trek polls would have really helped on the descent, my knees were shot by the end.

    This is a grueling hike and you will want to turn around and go back. Don't. Just keep going it is worth it. This is my favorite of all the valley hikes.
