Our European Bureau in Hamburg is several hours ahead of us and is able to see news while we are asleep. This report came in – – – – – The Half Dome cables are closed for “emergency repairs.” Unknown reason, but on Jun 18 I saw this broken 2 x 4 board and a few missing ones.
Perhaps they are repairing them. I saw no other issues with the cables then. It’s expected they will be open Jun 23 by noon. Call 209/372-0826 if you are impacted.
Refunds will be issued for missed hikes due to this. Sorry, but no “reschedules.” The policy sez refunds for when the cables are not available…but we mostly thought this was for SNOW conditions in May and June. Wow…bummer.
It pays to read this blog – no other media has this story. We’re here to serve and protect.
