Up and Down Half Dome (video)

In On the Trail, video

Perhaps the most breathtaking part of climbing Half Dome via the cables isn’t the steep climb up, but the wonderful views you get climbing down. Here’s a great video of the trip down the cables from STRYKER662 on YouTube.

If you’re interested, here’s Stryker’s unedited video of the climb up the cables. It gives you a pretty good idea what you’ve got in store for you if you’re planning on making the hike sometime this summer. It is one steep climb.
