Half Dome permits - group of 12
Save

Hello,

We are a group of 12, and got lucky with permits on 2 different days for 6 each. Ideally we would like to all go together on one day. Is there any way/forum where we could check with others to swap 6 permits?

Reading a bit more, this may not be possible: The permit holder or alternate must show a government-issued identification card that matches the permit holder or alternate listed on the Half Dome permit at the permit checkpoint.

I don't see how it is possible. But there may be other groups with more information.

You will not need a Day Use Permit to enter Yosemite on the day of your hike, but you'll need one if you're coming back for other Yosemite tourism. I am assuming that you have secured lodging reservations outside of the Park. If you have overnight reservations inside the Park, then you won't need a Day Use Permit at all.

You cannot trade these permits. As you observed, each permit has a team leader and (optional) an alternate leader. One of those individuals must be present to use that permit.
