Smith93Route Climbed: Cables Date Climbed: May 30, 2004  Sucess!


Absolutely amazing views from the top! The cables were the easiest part of the whole climb the hard part was getting to them. It was a very, very long day of hiking we started at 5:00am in Curry Village. Making the whole hike approximately 19.5 miles. Great hike though, I would go back and do it in a heartbeat!

Did the cables hike with my wife in 97. The best hike I have done in the world.

In 99 I lead my climbing partner and his brother up Snake Dike. Felt like I was flying runout 100 feet in a strong wind.

Went back for second annual trip. Same as last time - perfect conditions. Only difference was I woke up a little late and then had to come down that last mile or so in the dark (had a headlamp w/me of course).

This was my first "adventurous" hike and I loved it! We had amazing weather, not a thunder bumper on the horizon.

Pretty uneventful. Camped in little Yosemite Valley so approach wasn't bad, first pitch was crux, the rest a cruise and 4th class marathon on top. While descending the cables we learned of the events of 9/11 and were in utter disbelief. We hoofed it to camp and got to Yosemite Valley proper, 6 miles, full packs and racks, in 45 minutes!

Classic route. Unfortunately the Valley was smoky, so the views weren't as stellar as they could be. That was one loooong day.

16 hours round trip from the car. Passed two groups on the rock. Route was BEAUTIFUL!! Cables down was scariest part!! Fat tourists peeling of f and stumbling.

Will remain on my list of favorites. Just don't look down and hang on to the cable.

5th annual climb. This time as a one day trip. Left the car at 5am, base of climb at 10am, summit at 4pm, headed down at 5pm, and reached the car at 8pm. Long 15 hour day. Started and ended in the dark. Unfortunately the summit wasn't as fun since it was windy and overcast, but the route was still very enjoyable. 5 teams on the route that day.

My favorite hike so far. I have done it 3 other times since. Could not summit once due to the cables being down.

6 am start on the trail and made it to see sunrise through Nevada Falls. It is quite a sight to see. We hit the cables at about 9 am then spent about an hour on the summit. We got back down the cables prior to a horde of people arrived at bottom. All in all it was a fairly easy hike that we fininshed in about 7 hours.
