A complete ascent of the Yosemite’s Half Dome cables. Unbroken footage from the bottom to the top. See what it’s really like. In this rare continuous video, Mr Half Dome strapped a GoPro HERO wide-angle camera on his head and takes you the entire 425 foot vertical ascent. You’ll be traveling 600+ feet at a 45 degree angle. Scary? Yes – so hang on tight. Overcome your fears and hike Half Dome! You will LOVE it. The top is 8,842 feet above sea level. 4,737 feet above the valley.The views are superb. Just do it.
If you are planning this hike, this is a MUST SEE. No stills can convey the excitement. Narration is included to inform you about the cables. Other videos can’t do it in the 15 mins allowed by YouTube. Mr Half Dome does it in 12. It was filmed in June 2009 before permits. It’s not as crowded now. Yes, he is going up the outside; it makes for a better video. We do not recommend it – he didn’t do it until his 11th time. He’s at #41 now. In the Wilderness, you assess the risk of what you are about to do, and deal with it.
Carpe Diem – Seize the day!
