Yosemite's Half Dome: The Hike Professional Review and Guide
"Rise early and get organized—it helps to lay out your gear the night before. Use your checklist to make sure you don’ t forget anything. Have your breakfast and be on the trail by 6 a.m. A good goal is to arrive at the cables by 11 a.m. to avoid the crowds. An early start will allow you to make this an easy hike at your own pace, resting as you go along. Keep in mind this is a fun hike—not a death march! Remember, your pull up the cables will be much easier if you can zip right up, rather than inching up in traffic."
