Today we feature a guest blog from Scott Gehrman. He is the Executive Director of a non-profit guide service that may provide an alternative.
Having trouble getting a Half Dome permit? Ever consider a guide service? Lasting Adventures, Inc. is a non-profit guide service which has been guiding in Yosemite for over 15 years! We have successfully taken thousands of clients to the top of Half Dome over 75 times! We do it at a competitive yet economical price with all proceeds going back to our youth scholarship fund. We have various days still available: May 27, 30, 31; June 2, 8, 9, 13; July 4; and many in August. We are filling up but do have slots available if you are interested. On selected dates we even have Mr. Half Dome as a guest! Our motto is “Developing Skills, Attitudes, and Memories to Last a lifetime!”
Our Yosemite permitted guides take care of all safety concerns with a first aid kit, CPR and Wilderness First Aid training. We also bring water filter pumps to ensure you stay hydrated. We’ve done the trail so much we can get you to the top – conditions prevailing. We can’t control the weather and if the cables are not up we will take you on another fantastic all day hike. We promise a fun-filled experience.
Some people have more time and want to do Half Dome in more than one day. We can plan a fully outfitted backpacking trip from 2-6 days in length on almost any dates which can include other summits, high alpine lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and memories to last a lifetime. Many people know Half Dome as it is THE Yosemite icon, but there are miles of wilderness and beauty that you cannot see from the valley floor. We can take you there for low non-profit rates while taking care of the hassles for you. Contact us for your small or large group backpacking adventure now!
