Ascent Trip Report3rd ascent of Half Dome: This time I was 17, and because I feared running out of daylight (see my 2002 climb), I descended the trail by myself, leaving my uncles behind on the summit. I realized that I was out of water when I arrived in Little Yosemite Valley and had to hike the rest of the way down thirsty. I took the Mist Trail because it was shorter and when I reached the drinking fountain by the Vernal Fall footbridge, I gulped water for what seemed like 5 minutes.
