SW face of Half Dome

SW face of Half Dome (view)

This is what you see as you approach the SW face from the notch between Mt. Broderick and Liberty Cap. The original SW face route (5.9/5.10) goes up just left of the shadow line. Snake Dike (5.7R) goes up close to the shadow line. Both routes converge close to where the shadow merges into the skyline; it's a 1000 foot class 3 walk-up from there. Further right are the Autobahn (5.11) and Southern Belle (5.12). The huge arch to the right is part of the South Face route (VI 5.9 A2+).
