It's just north of Bishop. Ten minute approach.
I'll be posting a page on it tonight. If you get a chance check it out.

Yes, it's granite. The orange tint is due to the early morning sun. Yosemite Valley, all granite of course, is loaded with clean geometric cracks.

Hi Christine, Most of the routes on this formation are pretty difficult, or just scary as in "Pratt's Crack" 5.9. This is a wide, very wide, crack that spits you right off, unless you are Chuck Pratt himself.
The reason it looks this color is that I took this shot early in the morning. But, trust me, it's granite.

Oh, I totally believe that it's granite. :) Although I would pee my pants, it still sounds like fun and I miss climbing outdoors! Have fun on your many adventures. :)
