Have hiked it 3 times up the cables but finally bagged Snake Dike the day after Thanksgiving during a relatively warm spell back in like 2000. Sublime. "friction forever" after the climb ends is no lie, it's a classic calf burner. Descending the cables laying against the rock was interesting but easy.

webenjiCoolest Yosemite Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 17, 2008
I have done this hike a few times now, always through the cable route as a day hike of 8-10 hours. The toughest was in 100F heat with 1.5 liters of water! It is one of the coolest hikes in Yosemite with the cables making it quite fun. Unfortunately you do not get the 360-view feeling (that you get on Cloud's rest or eagle peak, for example) because the top of the dome is so big.

Cables were down, but we practised and pitched it out with prusiks on the way up. Much slower than grabbing the cables and hauling, of course. Lots of traffic up there. The views were stunning, and all the waterfalls were pumping! Awesome hike (with elements of climbing thrown in).

PellucidWombatElectrifying Cables Descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 2, 2010

PellucidWombat

Via Snake Dike with friends Daniel Honegger (my rope), Mike Shen , & Edward Lau. My friends were sport climbers, so Dan and I left my trad gear in for Mike & Ed to clip through for the first 2 pitches, then we climbed as completely separate teams for the rest. A great climb!

There was a helicopter MedEvac being conducted on the shoulder, so NPS rangers would not allow us to continue down beyond the base of the cables. As we waited a half hour or so for the pickup, we watched an afternoon thunderstorm barrel down on us. We weren't allowed to go down until the helicopter came and left, and by then it was lightly raining and lightning was almost upon us! (2 seconds or less between boom and flash). Since I was carrying a pack full of metal climbing gear, I had a good run down to the forest as a hail & lightning storm erupted around us.

A great hike. It's not just about the cables. Started at Happy Isles TH and every bit of the trail was worth it.

I went with my gf and her dad. She wasn't prepared for the extent of how physically demanding the hike was and overall it took us around 22 hours I believe. It is such a fantastic hike with great views. The cables are hair raising and worth the trip!

First time to the top of Half Dome for me. Some serious run out on this route! Despite the run out, however, all the moves are there and the climbing was spectacular. The only downside was the hike which was actually very beautiful and went by rather quickly.

Backpacked to LYV and day hiked to the top via the cable. Loved the cable - the funnest part of entire hike from TH. No traffic no jam on the cable; pleasantly surprised. Crowds factor on top of the dome was OK - expected but not too bad, maybe because it was Monday. Brought my Jetboil and enjoyed a cup of hot Thai tea. That was good. ;9

Next time it will be Snake Dike
