The Half Dome Cables are not expected to be put up during the week of June 6.
Early June and more snow on the way to Yosemite. Not much, but ENUFF is ENUFF already. The thread mentioned above to exchange permits is working. Not everyone will be able to do Half Dome, but I was happy to see many folks working things out. I reference Jeff’s comment:
I just want to thank Kevin publicly for helping my wife and I by trading us permits for the date we needed in August! We didn’t even have the date he needed, but he still made a trade with us to help us out.
So hang in there, folks. Can I suggest that you contact each other via the email address that the other person has on their comment. We are getting literally HUNDREDS of requests and you can’t expect the other party to scan the comments. So communicate directly.
I am not posting buy/sell offers, rants or cry-baby comments. We all know how hard it was to get permits. Write the Park Superintendent with your opinion And get involved in the planning process for the final decision on what will happen to the cables. The decision will be rendered in November and one option is TO TAKE THE CABLES DOWN. See more <HERE>.
