Description

This is the easiest path to the top of Half Dome. Start on the detached flake on the west face, below 'This Is Ridiculous', and climb up and right towards the large horn. Wrap around to the south side to climb on sweet patina edges and jugs then mantle onto the shelf. Walk up the shelf (ignore the crack straight in front of you) to the left to finish on the easy arete.

Protection

2 Bolts, finger size pieces but not very much. Chain anchors on top, 50m rope to get down.
