Located just below Joe Brown , the northwest face of the larger Half Dome boulder receives a lot of shade and is most popular for its two moderate, quality crack climbs. Little Half Dome sports two difficult boulder problems, including a (Hensel? Powell?) problem that is among the hardest on the hill.

On the southwest side of the larger Half Dome boulder, climb up the vertical face on excellent rock. Use sidebulls, an undercling, and incut flakes near the top. Fairly OTD with a not-so-great landing, many might opt to set a toprope utilizing the same anchors that are used for the north face cracks. Warning: lizards live under the deep undercling and might startle you, although I've never had one bite me in what I imagine are probably more than a hundred ascents....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
