A wonderful dayhike up from the valley. Started presunrise, and timed my summit perfectly so I was alone for 15min on the Sunday before 4th of July. Great views, nice bit of exposure too.

Date Climbed: Jun 22, 2006


We left the Bay area about 4am, and set out from the valley floor a little before 9am. Made it to the top by 1pm and returned to the valley floor to check out the other sites. It's a great hike, but bring lots of water as it can be uncomfortably hot after passing Vernal and Nevada Falls on the Mist Trail.

OJ LoennekerLong Hike!!! in 199?  Sucess!

Hiked up this rock back when I was in high school with my Dad. We took the JMT to Little Yosemite Valley, and then up to the top of Quarter Dome.. We had to sort of scramble, and hold on to the cables, because the poles where not in place . The cables where just laying against the rock. We made it up and back down. I was amazed at the amount of lightning striked of this rock...
Returned to the trailhead via the mist trail/staircase... Whoooff.. that was a long day, and I sure was tired...

Date Climbed: Jun 11, 2006


I really like this hike. The scenary was great and the waterfalls are something else. I thought it looked a little daunting coming from the east. We picked a good day for it too. Sunny cool day. Not very many people on the trail. About 25 people max on the summit. You know, the cables were not as bad as I thought they would be.

Dayhiked it with a full pack with my brother while training for Mount Rainier. This was my third time to the top, though this was my first dayhike from the Valley floor. Always a good one, and so close to the Bay Area. The other 2X were in Sept-89 with my Dad and again in Aug-99 with Maria.

Great hike with lots of water, wildlife, vistas, heat, mist more like torrential rain. Do this dude in May or early June for big
waterfall volume. Took us about 10 hours. Take your time and enjoy
all of the above. Lots of novice hikers on the dome, try to be

downbootiesSnake Dike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 22, 2005


I had hiked up the cable route in October 2003, but Jon and I wanted to give Snake Hike a try. It was a little crowded at the base of the 5th class climbing with one party on pitch one when we arrived and 2 parties coming up as we were waiting to begin. The party ahead of us started simul-climbing when they hit the dike and the parties below us were slower, so soon we felt like we had the place to ourselves. I lead the first pitch and Jon lead the rest because I'm still not brave enough to lead runout stuff (even at 5.2, silly me). It was a little smokey, but still some stellar views.

Date Climbed: Jun 30, 2002


I wanted to do the Regular route in a single push. Everything started in the Esat Buttress of El Capitan. We were planning for a 12 hour climb and we did it in 6h: we were shocked! Then we thought of doing Free Blast and happened in 6:30h. We said South face Washington's Column on a day and we will be ready for Half Dome.
The Regular took us 12h. This paved the way for The Nose in a single push.

Beat the crowds and chanced the snow. Both the hike in (and out) and the climb were great! Especially nice since there were only a handful of other people around!

Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2005


Got up before dawn to start hiking. Damien and I were the first team off the deck around (I think) 10 am. Once on the dike itself I missed the turn that Supertopo tells you not to miss and followed the obvious but wrong line until I got to a loose, skinny bolt and realized my mistake. Back on route, I found the climbing a little tedious, more like a steep hike actualy, but the view was awesome. At the last belay, I found a nice BD cam that looked like fixed gear but slid right out. Sweet. There were at least half a dozen ropes behind us on the route and half of them must have topped out after dark. We were back in the valley by 9 pm. A fun day.

Been up the cables a couple of times, plan to do Snake Dike soon. A friend of ours introduced us to Half Dome in October 2003 when we had just moved to California. He said it would be something like his 10th time hiking to the top. I couldn't ever imagine doing something like that 10 times when there's so much else to do. But now I know why. Half Dome, despite the crowds, is awesome.

Did this in the early 80's, then again with a YMCA group of kids (of which my son and nephew were a part) a few years ago. Just a spectacular now as then.
