Half Dome.  
Slim, sounds like we should hang out :) I love offwidths and spend quite a bit of time in Vedauwoo. I climbed the route sometime in May. Jul 27, 2008

Slim - I did do a couple of routes back there a while ago. I called the area The Back Porch and was aiming for a kid friendly area to take my daughter to. I can not take full credit for the right slab route, however... I placed the anchors and TR'd it with folks but did not feel like hand drilling the protection bolts... When I went back after I got my Bosch, someone had already finished the job (I suspect the same person who has/had done a lot of the bolting down there).
I've posted a couple photos on my profile page

Re: Half Dome, right side (last time I was there). there are 2 bolted routes around on the far right side (east, right of the two pitch 10) I believe go at 10 b/c and 11+ (black streak, furthest right).

Half Dome needs to be added to the database here... I'll try to do it but if someone beats me to it, great! (Jeff Bryan's photos are a good start... ) Jul 28, 2008

Yes, Derek is correct in his beta regarding the routes that are located on the right section of the dome. He and I climbed there about 4 years ago, the route was a 2 pitch 5.10ish slab that was sparsely protected. The start of the second pitch was a bit tricky and runout. We had discussed not adding this to the database, but alas, good things come to those who wait. Sep 12, 2008
