A group of us set out to conquer Half Dome by night. The goal was to make it to the top for sunrise over the valley. We didn’t make it quite to the top by dawn, but we were high enough to enjoy an epic view of the sun coming up and made the final climb in the warm morning light. It was beautiful!!

Onwards and upwards!!
