If you drew a square on the ground the same size as this rock and stood there in it it would be no big deal. But standing on that rock with big air around was as Little Joe LeConte once said "a little ticklish"!

If "Little Joe Cartwight" were alive today,
he'd remark how much this resembles Bonanza's
6th season episode entitled "Between Heaven
and Earth."

It was the one where Little Joe was chasing after a cougar.

Merry Christmas to you, Windsor!

Where exactly is this formation? At glacier point somewhere?

This is on Illilouette Ridge about 2 miles south of Glacier Point and about 3/4 mile southeast of the parking lot for Taft Point and Sentinel Dome. The views rival Glacier Point and nobody around. It's a thousand ft higher (8,200') and above Illilouette Falls I've been there a few times. It's like a well kept secret. It's real easy to get to. I'm gonna put up a M&R on it soon.

Cool- I see the general area now. Poo to all those folks who say SP doesn't have good info on it. Look forward to your page and expect one day I'll be signing the summit log.

Thanks g. I don't doubt my heart was beating faster standing there while my friend took the shot. Your profile pic is totally unique and outstanding.

Thanks! It definitely raised my pulse a bit to slide out on that perch! The rock itself was not comfortably thick, but it was solid and cantilevered. Plus we have seen it used for others backdrop so I knew it would hold up.

did I miss this picture when you posted it last July? What a great shot! Someday I am going to get one like this, just once in my hikes.

Yes, it would def raise my pulse too but what a great picture for your wall!

Thanks Kathy. Jay and I were up on Illilouette Ridge. I found a rock outcrop about 30ft. high on the edge of the ridge. Jay took a pic of me with his Canon 5D after a steep move.
You can see my Xsi on the rock below.

Superb viewpoint. And still the most memorable place I've been to. I expected it would be, but it was infinitely greater.

Thanks Ray. We were hiking on the ridge and I came apon this small rock tower, scrambled up and my friend took the shot.

That's just a knockout of a shot from one of the great hidden spots in our Yosemite. One of a ton of great photos you have here!

Thanks Larry! It is good to see you signing some of the local hikes like Big Rock Ridge which is also one of the Bay Area's finest hikes and views that most people don't know about.

My hat's off to you for creating so many fine pages! Having grown up in the Bay Area, I've always enjoyed visiting local highpoints, most of which are unnamed. It's great fun these days to visit the recognized places and see just who else has been there through this site. Thanks again for being there.

A little late response Larry. But thanks much for the comment. Wish I was there!
Due to arising circumstances I've been unable to get up the high country lately but hopefully that will change in a month or 2. Still plenty of great hiking in the Marin backyard.
