I finished my 2004 trip to the Sierra's with an overnight bivi at Clouds Rest. What a spectacular night!

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.

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.

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).

A magazine article talked about "great exposure while hiking this". We have not experienced any of this, but it was really nice regardless since we hiked it the last weekend Tioga was open and there were no other people on the trail. The view from the top with clouds over Sierra was awesome.

climbed with tsteine.

took slightly more than 7hrs on the way up and 4.5 hrs down. grand view of half dome and the valley and the surrounding ranges. above 9000 feet, (beyond the switchbacks) snow persist, snowshoe came in handy.

other than a few backcountry campers on our way up and a few pple on our way down near nevada falls, we didn't run into anybody. Nice spring sunday for some solitude in Yosemite, along a trail that would have been crowded during summer.

We started from the valley at 6 am and reached the summit ridge at about noon, where it was very helpful to have snowshoes. We summited at 1:30 pm and were rewarded with a fantastic view. Back by 6:30 pm

Started at camp near the Half Dome trail. Only saw a few persons the entire day. Magnificent view! Not bad for a first trip into the park.

A nice easy hike with Scott and Gina. Great views of Half Dome for their first summit. That's tough to beat.

This was a surprise. We planned just a casual day if hiking up from Tenaya lake, then returning by the same route. We left at 11:00am in the morning and reached the summit by 1:30pm.

Then we got the bright idea to head down to the Valley in time to catch the 5:00pm shuttle. This meant a lot of downhill running, but we hit the shuttle at 4:20pm. So a total of 17 miles in 5.3 hours is a new record for us. Needless to say, the next day was spent lounging around the lake.
