South Face (III 5.8, 8 pitches)  Sucess!

Holy laybacking! Definitely the theme of this climb. MichaelJ and I climbed the route from the Porcupine Creek trail head, starting at 7:30AM. The hike to the dome was easy, but we spent a lot of time thrashing around in the bushes after going cross country, trying to find the start of the climb. We started on the route at 11:00AM and topped out at 3:40PM. There were some annoying bushes to thrash past on the route and a ton of laybacking. We did it in 6 pitches and I led pitches 2,4,6 (basically pitches 3,5,7,8 in Supertopo). Overall a good climb, but maybe not worth the effort of the approach.

Porcupine Creek Trail  Sucess!

Easy day hike from Tioga Road. Great view of Half Dome, Cloud's Rest and Tenaya Canyon. I also had fine views of a traffic jam in Yosemite Valley - at least I wasn't stuck in it.

Route: Porcupine Creek, Date 07.15.07  Sucess!

Lotsa views for little effort... and Half Dome looks great from this vantage point. Had lunch in San Francisco, drove up to Tioga Pass and was still able to squeeze this little hike in before sunset.

I was sick....  Sucess!

...but made it. I had to abort a previous trip to the summit when I was younger for the same reason.

A great hike on the way home on 120  Sucess!

I couldn't resist taking Juan on his first hike overlooking Yosemeite Valley after he passed on the Sunrise Lakes-Clouds Rest-Half Dome-Happy Isles hike two days earlier. I was impressed by the scenic, uncrowded trail and the great views of Half Dome. Took about 3 and 1/2 hours including almost an hour taking in views around the dome. We had warmed up by hiking Pothole Dome and swimming in the Tuolomne River after closing up camp in Tuolomne Meadows.

Short hike from 120  Sucess!

A nice little hike from Highway 120 - nice to get away from the valley crowds. Still seemed crowded compared to SEKI though!

Via Yosemite Falls Trail  Sucess!

Dayhiked this with my brother the week before dayhiking Half Dome. The trail was mostly though woods past Yosemite Point, so if I were to do it again, it would be via Tenaya Canyon. Incredible view of half dome from the summit.
