Half Dome in Yosemite


Half Dome rises 4,737 feet from the valley floor to reach a final height of 8,839 feet. It was first successfully climbed by George A. Anderson in 1875.  Today, the summit can be reached via a 16 mile (round trip) trail, with the last 400 feet being aided by two steel cables.
