Permit Day Traders

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

To request, trade or give permits, Click HERE.

** Put your contact info on the request. **

     The Half Dome Cables are not expected to be put up during the week of June 6.    

     Is everybody busy trading permits? Kinda like 5th grade: “I’ll trade you a Mickey Mantle for an Orlando Cepeda.” The Vigilante’s from another blogsite are clamping down on scalpers. Ebay is pretty well devoid of Half Dome permits and I just got an alert on a Craig’s List offering.  Only two bucks but here you go:

Yosemite Half Dome Permit – $2 (fremont / union city / newark) … We were planning to hike the half dome however we can not make it on that day. …

When I clicked on the link I get:

    I hate doing weather reports, but if you have permits for early June…check this for Yo Semite for Sunday:

Isolated thunderstorms in the evening…snow showers in the evening…then snow showers likely after midnight. Snow showers…showers and isolated thunderstorms in the evening…then showers likely after midnight. Snow accumulation up to 7 inches. Snow level 7500 feet.

    Though I appreciate your website and have also used it to request permits, I think you should clamp down on people abusing the system the way the vigilante group is whacking the scalpers on the yosemite forum.

    People who buy up permits for 8 or 9 dates and then request to trade for one specific date are no better than the scalpers buying and selling them. These “traders” have no intention on using them and are taking them out of the hands of people who legitimately need them.
