David Nebel Leading Up Half Dome's Snake Dike (5.7)


It is hard to beat this route for sheer enjoyment, as the dike is easy, fun, and in a super position. Protection is thin -- bolts every 75 feet -- but it is not a big problem. The dike snakes up the east face for about 5 pitches after two pitches of easily protected 5.7. This route can be done -- just -- in one long day from the Valley. I did this with David in 1993, and with Sandy Kline a couple years earlier.
