What to do in dicey weather? Hike! "Ran up" Clouds Rest with Mike & Maria from Tenaya Lake. Barefoot river crossing near the trailhead and hundreds of feet of snow climbing in trailrunners made for a fun little adventure. As we topped out, thunderstorms and rain clouds were everywhere around us. Awesome views from the top. 5.5 or so hours round-trip.

farrisglMay "Winter" Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 3, 2008


We got it all on this ascent. Rain, hail on the way to establishing camp about 1 mile from Cloud's Rest. A snowstorm delayed our summit attempt until the next morning. Glad we were prepared. Lots of snow on the trail from this point to the summit. At least 4 feet of snow covered the summit. Stopped about 100 yards short as I did not have my rope and pickets. Even with axe and spikes, with the wind, it was too dangerous. Summitted offically in August. What a Great Peak!!!

What a FUN day hike! A welcome alternative to Half Dome. There wasn't much snow on the trail, until the very last 100 feet. It was knee deep. Will post pictures of this soon. Highly recommended!

Hiked from the valley. No snow on the trail, barely enough on the summit to boil water.

Date Climbed: Nov 14, 2008


A heck of a day trip from Happy Isles in mid-November (9 hours). An extremely clear day with the Coast Range visible 120mi to the West. On the South (trail) side there are only a few patches of snow starting at ~9000ft (Nov. 14th).

Beautiful hike up from the lake, though it seemed like we spent a lot of time giving back elevation that we then had to gain again. Stunning view of Half Dome and the Tuolomne Valley.

RatballsFrom Tuolumne Meadows  Sucess!


Came upon Cloud's Rest on a three-day loop hike from Tuolumne Meadows back in 1992, with my ex. Didn't know it was a summit, per se, but figured with a name like "Clouds Rest" it had to offer pretty views, so we headed that way: of course, it's so long ago now that I have no idea if I was right or not.

Final mountain of a 60-peak, 43-day summer tour. A fitting end, as Cloud's Rest is a classic viewpoint of a spectacular place.

Cloud's Rest is definitely better than Half Dome. We met 4 others on top of Cloud's Rest while Hundreds tried to jam up the Half-Dome cables. The view at CR is much better. Trail note: There is a good spring on the switchbacks below The Pinnacles. Also the Half Dome trail spring has fantastic water and runs good all year round.

Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2008


Great dayhike. Trail was mostly covered with snow, navigated via a combination of previous tracks and tree markings. Helped two parties regain the trail after losing their way. Views from the summit have to be some of the best I have ever experienced. Highly recommend this peak for the best views of YNP!
