So sad, I was just in Yosemite and read the recommendations for climbing half dome. Harness, carbiner to snap in to the cable, special shoes, sturdy gloves etc. Less than 1 out of 10 follow the recommendations that will save your life.

Just an editorial correction to a tragic story. The elevation of Half Dome is 8842 ft. The climb from the valley floor is about 5,000 ft.
