Half Dome top overhang, Yosemite NP

Originally uploaded by JoeDuck

I couldn’t resist blogging another picture of Yosemite.

This shot was taken at the top of Half Dome, which is not a technical climb if you go around the back. Still, it’s a long day of about 16 miles round trip with a pretty intense final push up the rounded granite of Half Dome’s eastern flank.

Cables allow this final climb of about 1/4 mile to be safe, but it’s so steep that you feel at times like you are dangling off the edge.

The tip shown here is visible in most views of Half Dome.
