Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2000
Beautiful view with lots of wind. It was part of our training for Whitney and I had on my new shoes (not a good way to break it in). The view was much nicer than the crowded Half Dome.

From Tenaya Lake, summited Clouds Rest and then continued on to Half Dome the next night. The best views in the valley!

tongos2happy isles->clouds rest-> half dome  Sucess!
hiked up to little yosemite, camped a night, left at 6:15 am in the morning to do clouds rest, saw the sunrise, made the top by 9:00. beautiful views, at all the angles. you can see just about everything. left the top around 9:20am, then hiked to half dome via the trail (JMT), and made the top of half dome at 11:20am. beautiful views as well, not as good as clouds rest, tons of peeps on the summit. on the way down, ran out of water, drink right out of the stream, hiked down to happy isles, and got back at 3ish.

My 1st Sierra peak done as part of a loop trip from Sunrise Lakes trail. It was a long time ago but remember that the views were great.

Peak BaguetteFrom Valley Floor  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2006

Peak Baguette

After a failed attempt on 06.24.06 involving swimming across Tenaya Lake to get to the TH and getting lost in the snow, decided to summit Clouds Rest from the Happy Isles side on 07.03.06. Stunning view, but sort of a challenge... as I hiked this, I kept thinking: "John Muir must've been totally ripped!" Clouds Rest is my favorite summit view ever! Next summer, I hope to double bag Clouds Rest with Half Dome from the Valley.

SeanReedyMy favorite hike so far!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2006


Hiked from Sunrise Lakes to Yosemite Valley via Clouds Rest and Half Dome with Bud, Trent, and Stephen. The views from Clouds Rest were the best. My brother Brian and his wife Amaryah thought enough of the views to hang out for 3 and 1/2 hours at the summit before heading back to the trailhead rather than following us down to Half Dome and the valley.

The views are better, but without the waterfalls. Less crowded too, though not by much. Been up here twice. Tenaya Canyon sure is beautiful.

Date Climbed: Jul 2, 2006


Climbed up from the valley floor after a quick jaunt up Half Dome first. The climb never seemed to end, though the views from the top are spectacular, well worth the effort.

A pleasant hike. Skip the trail near the top and find a clean granite scramble. (x2) From Yosemite Valley in December, camping on top (December 6, 2008).

uwjennieRoute climbed: South Slope from the Valley  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 20, 2006


After backing off our trip plans to do Bloody Mountain due to weather conditions two of us headed for Yosemite instead. We decided on a whim to hike to the top of Clouds Rest from the Valley on Saturday morning. We started a bit late, so we arrived at the summit around 3. This is the time of year to hike this peak. You get the most amazing waterfalls, views of the snow covered peaks, and there aren't many folks around. We were the only ones on the summit and only saw about 10 people total after leaving the JMT. We had the summit to ourselves on this amazing day. The view is much better than from Half Dome. We were on snow for the last 1000 feet or so.

Date Climbed: Jul 30, 2005


Hitchhiked after work up to Tenaya Lake, spent the night on the granite beneath the stars, then went over Cloud's Rest and down to Yosemite. Met a great girl on top and jogged/ran most of the way down to Happy Isles, capped off by the delicious but overpriced Curry Village buffet.

My first hike in the Sierra, and I just couldn't get over how much granite was out there. It was enough to bring me back to the range the following years, 50-something summits and counting.
