5 out of 5 stars One of the best long lines in California

This route is about 2000ft long. It is continuously hard. I thought it was much harder than the regular route on half dome. That said, there are many bail options. Go as far as you can, and then turn around. A few Lowe Balls may tame the dangerous areas. Rappeling from the top involves 40 ft lateral swings. I thought the second pitch of Karakoram deserved 11+.
