Life changing experience. I recommend taking this two day adventure. I had a great time. John was a my guide and the guy is amazing. Half dome was a tough hike for me. But John really helped me make it all the way to the top.

We couldn't have been more in love with the experience. Our guides John and Steph were amazing- knowledgeable, patient and fun! They did a great job of breaking... More
