Todd the friendly SkyWest pilot told us he had been up to Halfdome even with ‘the cables being down’ over pizza and beer. We started packing soon afterwards. Using Prusik slings to aid up fixed cables won’t increase our climber cred but we were rewarded with perfect conditions and near solitude on the huge top. For a good while we shared the peak with only Harry the resident Marmot.
