I recently took a trip to yosemite and I wanted to know if you guys could identify 2 rock climbs I saw while I was there. I can look up all the info about them if I know their names.
They are both somewhat close to each other if I remember right although they are on opposite sides of the street. I saw them on Tioga road on the Eastern half before you get to Tenaya lake if you are heading West from Tioga Pass. I believe they are in or very close to Tuolumne meadows.
Thanks Chief. I don't think that is Aqua knobby though. The only reason I say that is because the route in the second picture isn't on Pywiack Dome. It is on the right side of the road as you come in from Tioga pass I am pretty sure. And all the pictures of the route Aqua Knobby don't show climbers on an overhanging section like that. Here is a bigger picture that shows more of where it is.
I always thought that route was just so so. The roof is exciting, but the first two pitches are unremarkable. The Sting is better. By Hook or by Crook is best. The 10c crack on the second pitch (or 3rd?) is classic.
First pic is not Needle & Spoon- N&S is far to the L of where the climbers are (it basically follows the white streak just to the R of the big cave-like thingie just above the same ledge those guys are standing on, far to their L). They're possibly on Zee Tree.
