For those who plan to hike/climb to the top of Yosemite National Park's Half Dome, it's going to cost a little bit more to do so.
According to YubaNet:
May 11, 2017 – Yosemite National Park will increase the permit fees for ascending Half Dome to a $10 application fee and a $10 permit fee. These fee increases will take effect when weather and snow conditions allow the Half Dome cables to be installed, at the end of May or early June 2017.
These fee increases are necessary to meet increased contractor costs. Currently, the application fee is $4.50 online and $6.50 by phone. The permit fees are currently $8.
