So, for The Boy's birthday, he has decided he wants to hike Half Dome. For those who don't know anything about Half Dome, click here. It is approximately a 14 mile hike roundtrip, and involves climbing (using cables) a very steep slope of a very tall rock. I am a little bit intimidated. It was always one of those things I thought I'd never actually do, and now I might actually do it. The 7 miles to and 7 miles from the Dome are intimidating enough, nevermind the actual rock itself. I was just reading this guy's post about hiking it in a day (thanks, Google), and I'm still a little intimidated. But I'm going for it. It will be an Adventure.
Does anyone out there have experience doing it? Tips? Am I nuts?
