Half Dome Cables Up May 2nd

KGO reports:
Hikers will have earlier than usual access to Yosemite's Half Dome because of the low snowpack.

Officials say the park will be installing cables to the summit of Half Dome this weekend, which is
two weeks earlier than usual.

Hikers interested in hiking the dome between Saturday and May 22nd must apply for a permit two
days in advance of their planned hike.

The regularly scheduled Half Dome hiking season will begin on May 23rd.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org
