Those of you who know me well know I enjoy hiking quite a lot. This particular hike up to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park, however, was a pretty intense experience and definitely ranks up there with the most difficult hikes I've done. The hike runs from near the very base of Half Dome up to the very top at 8,842 feet, making for an elevation gain of around 4,800 feet (roughly one vertical mile). Round trip it's about 20 miles of trail and takes around ten hours if you really crank.
