T. WhiteA two-timer  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2009

T. White

This was my first summit in a National Park. Only the tip-tops of the mountains vaguely showed through a layer of October fog, but I was hooked. Felt like the Himalayas to my tender soul.

Went back on an afternoon in 2009, after my belt had considerably broadened, and was aghast at the smog. Am counting that ascent as my climb date, though, as you could actually *see* something...

Date Climbed: Jan 3, 2017


As one would expect lots of slippery ice the whole way up. It was great seeing the mountains up the valley covered in snow. If you've only been to Sequoia in the summer you're doing it wrong. Hear me out, the sequoias blanketed in fresh snow is a sight to behold.

Memorial day weekend so the park was packed. The views at the summit were amazing, and the summit steward was great as well. This is well worth the short walk even if you only want to see the big trees.

Nice hike up from the road. Breezy and sunny weather made for an enjoyable view from all sides. Saw a family of bears on the way out.

I feel a little cheesy signing the Climber's Log for taking the trail to Moro Rock. But it was part of a long, ~12-mile loop hike from the General Sherman Tree to most of the highlights of the Giant Forest (e.g., Washington Tree, Huckleberry Meadow, Crescent Meadow). So I'm gonna count it.

Took the easy way to the top while passing through the park after a backpacking trip. Need to go back sometime; I remember it being smoky and hazy when I was there.

Date Climbed: Jun 23, 2011


Visited Moro rock during a family camping trip. Hiked the stairs with my 19 month old in a baby carrier backpack. Made me realize I have not climbed in about 9 months. Gotta get back out soon.

The view was a bit more disappointing than I had hoped for (too much haze) but well worth the short climb up the stairs.

The short hike to the top was a great photo op.

benkenone of the best the southern sierras has to offer  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2010


pennies on the patio route is a necessity!!!! my favorite climb to date. most of the bolted sports routes on the east face are also worth climbing. south faces are for this spring, and the multi day pitches of west face are waiting for me this summer.... DO NOT pass this up.

I did the short walk to Moro Rock early in the morning while everyone else was still asleep. This was during a weeklong trip to California in June.
