Access Issue: Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions Details


Climbs an amazing golden dike through the steepest section of the SW face of Halfdome. Pitches 2 and 3 are stellar and will make the long approach more than worth while. See posted topo for complete beta.
The cruxes are not bolted heavily enough to make this feel like a sport climb, but there are bolts where you need them.


SW Face of Halfdome. 350' left of Snakedike, 50' right of the Salathe'.
