Tick off your backpacking bucket list in Yosemite National Park with our 4 day, women’s backpacking tour to Half Dome where you’ll get your chance to climb the famous cables.
Live out every single one of those John Muir nature quotes in the backcountry of Yosemite National Park. Mountains calling? Check. Between two pines? Check. Walk with nature? Double check.
Meet us in the Valley to kick start your backpacking trip with your newest best friends. Leave the phone on airplane mode to awaken the senses. In no time the mountains and waterfalls will swallow you in their beauty. Smell that? Oh, that’s the allure of sweet pine found only deep in the forest. (And in the candle aisle at Christmas time).
Over the course of 4 epic days you’ll romp through the backcountry on a demanding, yet epic backpacking trip. The reward for climbing steep, challenging trails is panoramic views of the Valley below. Feast your eyes upon Mt. Starr King, Half Dome, Nevada Falls, Illilouette Falls, and ant-sized tourists below.
Of course, you really came to climb the famous cables of Half Dome. Get ready to blast that hiker booty ascending 500’ over .5 mile up steps carved into the rock. Then, the real fun begins. It’s a 400’ gain up the cables with some points at 70%+ grades. There’s wooden slabs spaced out on the climb to rest your feet, but your arms will be doing some serious work. Worth it? HELL YES!
Don’t have backpacking equipment, but can beast master the stairs? Perfect. We got you covered with a backpack, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, and shared tent. You just need to show up to the Valley ready for a women’s backpacking trip.
