Maybe people like to walk the plank?


Maybe knott? They start to crawl. Looks like fun.

Werner has anyone sent a visor free pitch? Looks like there are some holds up there!

Ha! I see from Matt's picture that we're not the first to be there at dusk!


Many more fading-light photos from Half Dome in my RNWF TR.

Of course, I bet it didn't take him until dawn the following morning to get from there to the top!

The Visor hasn't been free climbed? Somehow, I have a vague memory someone freeing it, maybe back around '95 or so. Maybe my climbing trivia memories are getting mixed up, though.

Geez, I didn't recognize it without 4" of snow on it.
Wasn't even tempted to try walking it.

Took this shot on Sunday of a climber following on it. That is quite the traverse! I thought the entry to the squeeze was the crux.
