jlillywhiteClimbing Alone to Cloud's Rest
I'm going hike Cloud's Rest for the first time this July. I have nobody to hike it with. Hiking alone has it's own dangers. I have questions. 1) Should I worry about hiking alone on this? 2) How do I find somebody to hike with? If you could respond to my email address, I'd sure appreciate it! john.v.lillywhite@gmail.com. THANKS!!!

You should have no problem with this hike in July no matter which direction you start, Tanaya Lake or Happy Isles. Take a light jacket, water and a filter. It normally takes us between 8 and 12 hours to complete and while the view is amazing the hike itself is not hard at all.

Normal route from Tenaya Lake. Perhaps the best views for a class 1 peak in Yosemite.

Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2007


I day-hiked the trail from Tenaya Lake and back on a late September Friday. There were few other hikers that day, and I had the summit to myself for over an hour. The panoramic view is wonderful.

A bit of a haze in the valley. Great view otherwise. I liked Clark Peak a lot.

Everyone who visits YNP should do this peak. The views in every direction are amazing and the hike will not dissapoint.

From Toulumne Meadows past Cathedral Peak over Clouds Rest and picked off Half Dome on the way to the valley. Perfect weather

Date Climbed: Oct 12, 2009


With a big storm blowing in, this might have been the last day in 2009 for a non-winter ascent. Hazy, cloudy day (high clouds), which created some interesting views from the summit, definitely spectacular.

bearbnzTenaya Lake-Clouds Rest-Half Dome- Yosemite Valley  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2009


Hiked with friends and my 3 boys, 11, 9 & 9 years old. Fun day, although Half Dome was too crowded, but what else to expect on a weekend. On this day someone hiked up Half Dome and committed suicide, and Helo 551 flew up and landed on the summit to pick him up. The helo had come and gone by the time we got up there.

Desert Solitaire

Part of a 2 day backpack with one of my best friends, Anna. Amazing camping and and excellent airy summit. The Yosemite fires were raging, bringing visibility down, but mental clarity was truly at its finest thanks to the magic of this peak.

Left from TH at 6am with Felix. Cold for this time of the year - 29 degrees. Had summit and great views to ourselves (great view of valley, upper yosemite, etc..) for 15 minutes until another party arrived. Saw lots of people on the way down.

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.
