Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

     A tip on giving permits….just do a SEARCH on your PC on the blog to get to July 15 etc…then you can contact the person who needs them without having to read all the posts.

     This author is at the park now….here for 5 days. I’m a guest with Lasting Adventures. They have 8 clients for a guided hike up Half Dome….Except no Half Dome yet. Instead we’ll head up the JMT and avoid the heavy spray on the Mist Trail and go up past Clark Point and past the ice cut and up the Panorama Trail to Glacier Point. It will be about 55 degrees tomorrow but clear. That snow threat bypassed us.

     Starting Friday, May 27th, a NPS Ranger will be selling YNP gate passes from the Yosemite Chamber of Commerce offices inside Mountain Sage. Stop by and ask a question!

    From NPS website:

    The Half Dome Cables are not expected to be put up during the week of June 6 because there is a substantial snowfield on the Subdome. This steep snowfield can make access to the Half Dome cables hazardous for both trail crews and the general public. Slipping or losing one’s footing on this snow could result in a long fall with the potential for serious injuries. A trail crew will be stationed in the area starting June 6 and will be able to make frequent assessments of the trail and put the cables in place for the season as soon as conditions allow. The NPS will continue to provide weekly updates on the Half Dome Trail conditions and provide an expected date for placement of the cables, when known.
