Year's First Ascent of Half Dome Shows How Scarce Snow Is In Yosemite National Park
For the majority of us, climbing to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park occurs during the summer months when the cables are installed to make it a bit easier.
But the other day a local climber made it to the top and made a video of the views from the top.
Though spectacular, that video, made January 4, also shows how scarce snow is the "Range of Light" this winter. The video was posted on YouTube by "yexplore," an adventure company that offers guided trips in Yosemite.
