some seriously convoluted trivia

So I went to disneyworld with the family last week and I still had climbing on the mind. We went to EPCOT and I rode the ride Soarin'. This ride takes you on "hanggliding tour of california and at one point it flies past yosemite. Of course me not being able to get climbing off the brain saw a gorgeous crack system running up left of the major waterfall that is in sight of half dome. I was able to see small specks of people on the climb where they were doing a massive pendulum. SO HERE IS WHERE THE QUESTION LIES. Has anyone rode this ride... Or does anyone have ANY idea as to what route this is with such little information? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

i'll be up front: i don't know much about climbing in yosemite
but are you perhaps thinking of the King Swing on El Cap?

i'm sure there are pendulums on Half Dome as well, but i'm certainly not one to know them

Dude I've ridden that ride twice (did you smell the oranges when you flew over the orange grove?? trippy!)

I couldn't look fast enough or close enough to see anybody on any specific route. Good luck though!

yeah it was definately crazy how you could smell everything. You went a long way to ride it if you are in cali though. Is there one at disneyland?

Question???

Could you see the crack/pendulum, the waterfall and half dome at the same time? Or did you fly through seeing one after the other in succession but not all at once.

Believe me, it makes a difference.
