Great hike and the cables were a lot of fun! During the week it was not too crowded.

Awesome hike to the backside. Pitched camp about halfway and arrived at the cables just before sunset. Left the wife and kids at the base while I rushed up. All alone on top. Pictures, map and report at http://www.willhiteweb.com/california_climbing/yosemite_national_park/half_dome_018.htm

Definitely a hot and crowded hike as expected, but was awed by the gorgeous Yosemite Valley summit vistas and Nevada falls en route up the trail.

I likely wouldn't have moved to Cali if it weren't for the week with the boys in the Valley and Tuolumne. Snake Dyke with Joseph was a highlight for sure. good times!

Date Climbed: May 28, 2009


My friend and I climbed the Cable Route in a relatively speedy day hike where we tried to beat the crowds and the weather. Sure enough, people started showing up in some force (for a week day) when we were on the way down and it was a full-on rain by the time we were descending the Mist Trail. But, it was definitely a fun time!

Climbed Snake Dike with Carlos. Fun day even with the crowds. Had to wait for four parties at the base of the climb, then a ton of people on the cables to make it down. But still a great way to climb Half Dome!

This was a back-up plan after I failed to get over the Red Peak Pass due to snow (and lousy routefinding..).

A very nice hike with an amazing view at the top. The last few hundred feet were extreme. Using cables and metal rods for help. Very fun. Can't wait to do it again. You get to see allot of the park around you as well.

A most excellent epic adventure. The cables and Summit are unforgettable. There were five of us in our group and three of us made it all the way.
