Description:

Climbs an amazing golden dike through the steepest section of the SW face of Halfdome. Pitches 2 and 3 are stellar and will make the long approach more than worth while. See posted topo for complete beta. The cruxes are not bolted heavily enough to make this feel like a sport climb, but there are bolts where you need them. See supertopo.com or mountainproject.com for topos and complete route descriptions.

Descent Options:

romp up slabs to summit and descend cables (para Snake Dike)
