United States California Dome

Half Dome

Tips from the community

One of the most awe-inspiring granite monoliths in Yosemite National Park is arguably easier to conquer than it would seem. Sure, you will have to scramble across a death-defying drop whilst holding on to a handrail in one section but, in the end, it’s actually a not-too-difficult peak to conquer. Reaching the 2682m-high peak of Half Dome is certainly an exhilarating affair of its own accord, yet it’s the views from the top that make for the best rewards of all.
