This spot is absolutely breathtaking!!! 360 panoramic views of Yosemite. The hike is easy compared to others in Yosemite, being only 1.1 mile from the trailhead. And the views are so worth it!  On a good day there are several slack lines placed, and there may be people walking on them (they are literally 3000' off the valley floor in space).  Not for the faint of heart, but incredible to watch.  The day I was there they were pretty chatty and talked to others (when they were not out on the line). You can get as close to the edge of the cliff as you want. Just be extra careful and watch out for the cracks in the fissures.
