We have a Yosemite trip planned for July and it will include a 5-day hike from TM to the Valley. My son, who will be 11 at the time, will be with me. I had planned to hike Half Dome during the hike -- it would fall on a Thursday.
I just did a solo trip to Zion and hiked Angel's Landing and it's made me question whether I should let my son do Half Dome. I don't have a fear of heights and I'm usually very confident in my son's hiking/athletic abilities but, wow, I think some of the parts on Angel's Landing would have scared me to death if he'd been with me.
I'm thinking some of you will have hiked both Angel's Landing at Zion and Half Dome -- how do you think they compare in terms of risk, fear factor, etc.?
