SW face of Half Dome
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+).
