DalianHalf Dome


I climbed it once a year for the past 12 years. So I did hike to the top of Half Dome 12 times. Usually in the beginning of November when the cables are down and the crowds are gone.
For the past 6 years, I did the Cloud's Rest - Half Dome loop.

Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2014
4th time up in last 3 years. Will probably keep doing this on an annual basis, started at 9 AM and was back to the car by 5:30 - not too crowded as this was a Friday near the end of the season. Trip report is HERE.

DieselHalf Dome Experience   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2012


Everybody was fast to recommend a 4 AM starting time! Really? We went there to hike, see the nature, take pictures and have fun, not to hike in the dark. Left at 8AM, back at 5:30 PM? One hour on top. Went up Mist Trail and down John Muir Trail. Lots of very slow folks on cables, blocking both cables in the same time. My hands got tired holding the cable so I went on the outside and pulled myself up in 10 minutes. Going down felt way longer than going up.

Did cables before the permit madness. Stupidly went with two triathletes (hey Matt, hey Jessica) that kicked my ass hard. We did the whole hike, round-trip, in under 4 hours.

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 1998


Approximate date of second time ascending, on the way back from Merced Lake on a backpacking trip. First time was a day hike back in 1992. A hike that truly captures the essence of Yosemite: superb scenery, ridiculous crowds.

This was my first Sierra Nevada summit and it was magnificent.

Every hiker should make this hike at least once.

It's a classic for a reason. Can't wait to go back some day!

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2013
Climbed it on Day 1 of a JMT thru-hike that included 11 peaks. Got to the cables around 4PM and no one was there. Only 4 people on the summit when I was there. Not bad.

Third time up, only this time an incoming storm apparently scared the crowds away and me and my brother had the top all to ourselves - great fun! Trip report at http://www.mountainhiker.org/trip_report.aspx?id=105

bleakleylabor day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2008
Went up labor day weekend. The lines going up the dome were like nothing I'd ever seen. Nearly two hours of waiting just to get up the chain, and an hour to get back down. Ended up going down the mist trail after dark using cell phones and cameras as flashlights. Almost fell off the waterfall and died.
