Half Dome

Half Dome (1,444 m) from the Glacier Point, Yosemite Valley, California. Thousands of hikers reach the top each year by following a 14 km trail from the valley floor. After a rigorous 3 km approach, including several hundred feet of granite stairs, the final pitch up the peak's steep but somewhat rounded east face is ascended with the aid of a pair of post-mounted braided steel cables originally constructed close to the Anderson route in 1919.
