Date: October 8, 2010

The Half Dome Cables will be taken down for the season on Tuesday, October 12, 2010. The cables are taken down each October for the fall and winter season. The cables will be put back up in the spring of 2011 as conditions permit.

Visitors are strongly advised against attempting to summit Half Dome without the cables in place as the dome can be extremely slippery and may be wet and/or icy even in seemingly dry conditions.

Merced River Gorge

Descending from Yosemite Valley, the Merced River becomes a continuous cascade in a narrow gorge littered by massive boulders. Dropping 2,000 feet in 14 miles, canyon walls rise steeply from the river and have many seasonal waterfalls cascading down to the river.
