Drew Bedford and Mark Holmstrom climbed the Regular Northwest Face (RNWF) on Half Dome in a Day. We fixed the first three pitches (plus 30 feet of the 4th pitch) and did a one day ascent French free style. We topped out at 12am, 17 hours after our adventure began. We hauled a light bag with a 8.5mm static line on the steeper, direct pitches. What a beautiful route in an alpine setting.
