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.

colinrMy 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.

rangermattBest view in the park  Sucess!
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.

Hiked solo from Tenya Lake in 2.5 hours. Met a great couple from Holland on the summit, they were just finishing up a 4 day backpack trip through little Yosemite Valley. A very rewarding experience.

Made a wonderful camp on the lower slopes of Cloud's Rest with a greta view of the Clark Range. Wicked thunderstorm with nearby lightning strikes scrared the hell out of us.

Wanted this for a long time, but illness & traffic stopped me. Feeling so-so(?), I left SJC, CA again at 2:00a and hit Tenaya trailhead by 6:45a. With recent illness, didn't know if I would need to camp -- so I backpacked (not u-light) to summit by noon -- filmed, lunched and drank it all in by 1:30p -- dragged back into TenayaLk by 6:30p. A 3 hour nap, and the drive home closed out the 24 hr loop extraordinaire!

Great workout and scenic views of Tenaya Canyon and of Yosemite Valley from the top of Clouds Rest.

KClossonRoute Climbed: From Tenaya Lake Date Climbed: August 9, 2005  Sucess!


This was a fun hike. It was not too difficult, but I would not say it was completely easy. My brother and I reached the summit in about 2 1/2 hours. We had the summit all to our selves for about 30 minutes since we were early enough in the morning. As we headed back down we past maybe a dozen or more hikers, but about half of them were just going to the Sunrise Lakes area. We stopped by Whoa Nelly Deli for fish tacos and headed home.

Oh yeah, there is a squirrel/chipmunk up there that likes to scavenge for food. Watch your backpacks as he knows exactly where the food is and he is not afraid of humans. His name is "Paco".

It's views like this that will always leave me speechless. Skipped work and hiked it with my brother. It was very clear and without a lot of traffic on the summit (Monday). This was my third summit, after backpacking over it with my Dad and dayhiking it with Maria.
