Half Dome

United States | Yosemite | Yosemite Rock Climbing


Climbing Half Dome via the Regular Northwest Face Route (RNWF) is one of the most coveted of Yosemite climbs. The climbing varies from splitter cracks, chimneys, delicate traverses, and even a little slab climbing. With a touch of loose rock thrown in for good measure. There is even a seasonal, fresh water spring right at the base of the route! Half Dome is much more a logistics climb than other long routes in Yosemite. Efficiency and planning is required to make it up an often crowded, 24 pitches. Once on top, an easy one-hour hike takes you back to the base of the route. RNWF is so awesome!
