keemaRoute Climbed: Northeast Ridge from Sunrise Trailhead Date Climbed: July 14, 2005


A bit warm but otherwise a great day, It was very crowded at the summit. There musty have been two dozen people up there. There were also quite a few backpackers along the way, including a group of 6 from London who left the day after the bombing and wondered if they were going to get their Yosemite trip in, Most were headed for Sunrise Lakes.

Watch for the mosquitos! Some route finding had to be done as there was lots of snow on route. Fresh bear prints also seen. Greatest views of the valley. Comparable to Inspiration Point on the other end.

Beautiful, remote spot with views over Half Dome. Only passed a couple other climbers the whole time. Beautiful weather.

We started from the Little Yosemite campground after hiking to Half Dome the day before. Heading to the summit and all the way back to the car made for about 16 miles, but it was a very nice hike. We saw a baby rattler on the way up, but fortunately it didn't seem to mind our presence.

Started around 10:30am from Happy Isles and reached the summit by 4:30pm. Would have made it faster ,but up towards the top there was snow. Enjoyed the views of all the snow caps ,then left about 5:00pm making it back to Happy Isles by 8:30pm. I liked the hike better then half-dome.

I was a little concerned about climbing Cloud's Rest, since the Tuolumne hiking guide said that it is not one for the "acrophobis", which I considered myself to be at the time. But man, there is nothing like a shweeping wave of granite to make you forget about all those piddling human concerns. What a great peak.

Easy hike with a good view of the valley. The initial section was a little steep but not very long. What bummed me out was the loss of hard gained elevation afterwards. Reached the summit in about 3 hrs. Had lunch at the peak with fellow hikers and a domesticated chipmunk.

forjanRoute Climbed: South Slope (from Happy Isles) Date Climbed: October 2, 2004  Sucess!


Hiked with William Felten, Gil & Eve. We started from Happy Isles at 9:45am. I hiked at their pace. We had lunch at noon near Little Yosemite Valley and rested there for almost an hour. From there, they slowed down, so at the junction with the Half Dome trail and JMT trail I told them I'd go at my own pace. Higher up (at approx 8200'), great views opened up with the Clark Range dominating the southern horizon. I got to the top at 3:20pm. Twenty-five minutes later Will arrived at the top but Gil & Eve had turned around lower down. We had dark clouds on top but no thunder to be heard; regardless, Will and I both left the top ten minutes after Will had arrived at the summit. We were back at Happy Isles by 7:50pm.

Surprisingly not too crowded once past the first few miles until the junction to the Half dome trail. There are also two virtual geocaches on Cloud's Rest.

A pretty long hike from what I remember. It is marginally harder then Half Dome, but the view is not quite as astounding. Hiking it is a good option for those who have already been up Half Dome and are looking for something different

Started at Tenaya Lake trailhead at 7 am and headed out with bpgbennett towards Clouds Rest. Reached the top at 10 am. Very few people and wonderful views of, well, everything. We then headed out to summit Half Dome on our 12 hour, 21 mile traverse to the Valley floor.

Another great day in the Yosemite backcountry. Views of Half Dome and the valley are worth the hike. Lots of people - though not near as many as on Half Dome.

rgreeneRoute Climbed: NE Ridge Date Climbed: 19 June 2004  Sucess!


Climbed with Annette and friends. Started at about 10am at Sunrise Trailhead, summitted about 4pm. We were carrying packs for an overnight stay, so not a bad dayhike. Some afternoon clouds, but generally great weather the entire weekend (I recommend earlier in the day summits for best un-clouded views).
