Description

Drew Bedford and Mark Holmstrom climbed the Regular Northwest Face (RNWF) on Half Dome.. We fixed the first three pitches (plus 30 feet of the 4th pitch) rappelled, rested and did a one day ascent French free style. We topped out at 12am after 17 hours of climbing. We hauled a light bag using an 8.5mm static line on the steeper, direct pitches. What a beautiful route in an alpine setting!
