We took our time. Just over 11 hours from trailhead to trailhead. Really great view from the summit. I cannot believe how squeamish people are when it comes to walking along the summit ridge. Even my two hiking buddies were really freaked out about it.

Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2007
Climbed as part of Sierra Club backpack. Started from Tuolomne, spent first night at Nelson Lake, then cross country to Sunrise Lake (first lake) for overnight. Then 3rd day, day hike to summit Clouds Rest. 4th day hiked out to Tenaya Lake and took shuttle back to car. Wonderful view, although was lots of smoke in the air from fires near Santa Barbara.

Sure the trail up to half dome is beautiful and the summit is legendary, but Clouds Rest imho has better views and a lot less crowds making this my favorite between the two.

Nice long walk. Amazing views, as others have said. Didn't see too many people along the trail on the way up (saw more on the way back), though the summit had a decent crowd of overnighters and such.

Date Climbed: Aug 15, 1998


I think this summit is actually more scenic than Half Dome! The hike is dramatic, on the narrow ridgeline you look down the deep canyon and can see for hundreds of miles on a clear day. You can hit both CR and HD on a comforable overnight from Tenaya Lake down to Happy Isles. Well worth it.

Part of a 2-night backpacking trip (Echo Valley 1st night, Little Yosemite 2nd night). Fantastic views of everything in Yosemite from the summit on this perfect day. Took a nap on the summit, then did some scrambling on the pinnacles before heading down.

Hiked in from Tenaya Lake. Did the round trip in 5 1/2 hrs. Fast and light. Good weather at the top.

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.

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 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.
