The HD permit system is a farce that can't even decide whether it's about safety or preserving the wilderness character of a metal ladder drilled into the side of a rock.
Crowding along the Trail and the summit adversely impacts wilderness character of the area by compromising visitors’ opportunities for solitude.
Remember they aren't infringing on your right to access Half Dome, just one route of it, the route that they "built" and are therefore liable to maintain.
