Half Dome is a granite dome in Yosemite National Park (California, USA), located at the eastern end of Yosemite Valley. The granite crest rises more than 4,737 ft (1,444 m) above the valley floor.
As late as the 1870s, Half Dome was declared “perfectly inaccessible”. The summit was finally conquered in 1875, via a route constructed by drilling and placing iron eyebolts into the smooth granite. UNESCO World Heritage Site (excerpts from Wikipedia)
