Once while camped at 4th two of my buddies went up the west side of the lake. It was several years ago and I don't remember their exact route but they were forced to go pretty high to reach the back of the canyon much like Daves first picture.

After that they crossed over the creek and came down on the eastside of the waterfall. We ended up getting into it after I got pissed off for their recklessness and coming down the fall. They are both pretty good about being careful and safety but they had a couple of drops and swings that once committed they were forced to keep going to the next.
