I've stared at this photo for a while and still can't quite figure it out. I took this in 2004 from a distance. Notice how the wear mark (the cables) up Half Dome appear to wrap around the peak and not go straight up. (click photo for full-pixel image):

And compare it to this when you're actually at the base of the cables (that's me just starting up in 2005):
