Anyone know the youngest team to successfully get up Half Dome's Regular Route without assistance from parents or mentors?

Probably a couple of nameless pre-teens who didn't care enough to spray all over the internet.

Given the popularity of trip reports, spraying is alive and well. I think it's a fair question, though, judging from the responses here, might be better asked on supertopo. Some really young folks have done it, like you mentioned, lots have accompanied older climbers. I did it when I was 16 along with a couple of other teens. I know at least one other person who did it at 16 as well with another teen. Definitely seems to be a downward trend in ages though. The kids are getting good.

35 plus years ago a friend and his twin brother did El Cap (Nose) at age 17. So at this point in time such records have little meaning.

No one said such things have any "meaning". It was just an inquiry.

BTW, I know a couple of guys who did the Nose at 16 (also about 30 yrs. ago), but that's not what the OP asked about.

The Herson clan is inspiring for certain, but that's not what the OP asked about. S/he asked about the youngest team to get up without the assistance of older people.

Touche...seems pretty On-topic for those that aren't in the know,
but agreed her partner was definitely not 12 years old

Ask at the taco but I think c-Mac did el cap with his brother at 15 and 17 or something like that. Wouldn't surprise me if they tagged HD as well.
