OK This is not one of Google's Better MAps, you can 'see' the trail in the Hybrid view and then switch to the Terrain view to get a better sense of the climb. You can zoom in closer in Hybrid Mode then you can in Terrain Mode. Photo below the map shows the falls during a very wet apring/summer. If you don't see a map then your using an old version of Internet Explorer. Try Firefox!

I would rather face whole Hyde Parks of artillery than the ghastly forms of death which he has faced among the peaks and precipices of the mountains. There is probably no pleasure equal to the pleasure of climbing a dangerous Alp; but it is a pleasure which is confined strictly to people who can find pleasure in it. I have not jumped to this conclusion; I have traveled to it per gravel train, so to speak. I have thought the thing all out, and am quite sure I am right. A born climber's appetite for climbing is hard to satisfy; when it comes upon him he is like a starving man with a feast before him; he may have other business on hand, but it must wait. - A Tramp Abroad by Mark Twain
