Sea of granite! Yosemite valley Half Dome. If you decide not to free climb this route you will end up on the "Robbins traverse". A bolt ladder where you have to pull yourself up from bolt to bolt. By doing this you avoid climbing four more pitches up and down on loose rock or climbing a 5.10d(R) into a 5.12b traverse. Going for a quick ascent on this one there was no doubt to take the bolt ladder. Here, Mike Donaldson following up to the belay ledge ready to bust out 14 or so more pitches.#yosemite #halfdome #robbinstraverse #tradclimbing #rockclimbing #climbing #rock #thevalley #crackclimbing #longdays #halfdomeinaday #multipitchclimbing #klettern #grimper #escalade #chillino #guiding
