avatar Half Dome Cables Update
May 27, 2011 02:58PM
The Half Dome Cables are not expected to be put up during the week of June 6 because there is a substantial snowfield on the Subdome. This steep snowfield can make access to the Half Dome cables hazardous for both trail crews and the general public. Slipping or losing one's footing on this snow could result in a long fall with the potential for serious injuries. A trail crew will be stationed in the area starting June 6 and will be able to make frequent assessments of the trail and put the cables in place for the season as soon as conditions allow. The NPS will continue to provide weekly updates on the Half Dome Trail conditions and provide an expected date for placement of the cables, when known.

Musing Out Loud:
We wonder if the "Restore Hetch Hetchy" organization could be convinced to help return Half Dome to its pristine state.
