    Just figured I'd post this here with all the local Nor Cal guys...

    I'm going to hike Half Dome in Yosimite for the 4th of july with a buddy from work.
    Anyone ever done Half Dome?
    We're gonna do the 19 mile hike in one day, from about 5 in the morning till 7 at night. Everyone i've talked to like my dad and his friends said they were just about dead after that hike. /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    You're gonna be tired and sore as heck (do yourself a favor and stretch REALLY good before you start up)!! I only got half way and said screw it... but then again if I hadn't brought so much crap with me (camera gear) I would have probably made it...

    Me and my friend hiked 14 miles of the trail to half dome (7 miles up, then turned around) a couple years ago (we were 15 or 16). We got almost to the top and there were signs posted that said no hiking beyond that point due to icy conditions on the rock! That pissed us off big time /forums/images/icons/mad.gif ! It actually isn't a bad hike though, we did most of the trail in a "trail jogging" fashion. 4 hours up and 2 hours down. Pretty easy if you're not a smoker /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
