The daily question around the stately Dome mansion is when will the cable get up? And we keep saying there is too much snow up on Sub Dome. Half Dome itself is pretty clear along the Visor and rocks near the cables. But the bugaboo is Sub Dome. That’s 400 ft bump that preceeds the cables. Just so you know, the trail crews cannot safely get up Sub Dome which means you and I cannot get up either. Some people have and have even rapelled up the Dome using the steel cables. Not a smart thing. No, macho or not…. zip, slip and ker-splat. See my ACCIDENTS website page for the death stories in Nov ’06 and Apr ’07 of two women who tried and failed.
Just so you know what’s going on, here are 2 pix of the Sub Dome blanketed in white. DEEP white.
f you tried to go up, you can’t even find the steps and may risk falling a very long way. But you will have a great last view!
