Half Dome Hike Changes For 10/18

Post by maverick » Thu Sep 06, 2018 1:09 pm

Yosemite NP:
For 2018 only, due to a change at recreation.gov, the daily lottery will not operate for hiking dates in October. Instead, anyone wishing to apply for a Half Dome permit for October 1–9 must apply from September 15 through September 24 in a lottery that will function like the preseason lottery, allowing applicants to apply for a range of hiking days. Applicants will be notified of the lottery results on or about Wednesday, September 26. The last day to use the regular daily lottery is September 28 (for a hiking date of September 30). The Half Dome cables will be taken down after October 9.

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
