Do you think I will be ready to hike Half Dome?

Asked by simone54 (7581 points ) February 26th, 2014

I have a trip to Yosemite booked for July. I would really like to climb Half Dome. I’m aware of it’s difficulty and that I would need a permit to climb the cables at the end.

Right now, I’m 32, I’m about 20 over pounds weight and I will lose my breath running about 10 yards. I live in San Diego. There are a lot of walks around my neighborhood with slight elevation gain and there are plenty on mountains hikes.

If I walk about 10 miles and do a hike every week, do you think I’ll be ready to conquer Half Dome?
