BensunOver the summer im going to climb half dome with some family friends. I am slightly nervous about the massive amounts of tourists being there. Is there anyway to avoid the cluster fuck?
We all have permits btw
How sketchy is it?
Who has done it?
Any tricks, tips or shit I should know? or do while up there?
go suuuuper early if you want to beat the crowd. my friend said he got up around 4 am and made it up just in time, the entire way down was packed because of all the people coming up. he said its a super easy hike though. have fun. i went there and its awesome. i recommend doing yosemite falls too. I hiked that and it was a super easy hike too, but theres a nice pool at the top to chill at and eat lunch with crazy views. have fun. its an amazing place. also if you have time after or before you enter the valley, check out soda springs cabin. its this little cabin you walk like half a mile to through this meadow and when you get there its a spring of naturally carbonated water that bubbles out of the ground. its so cool.
