ZarathustraFirst summit for step-daughters  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2010

Zarathustra

Maybe the best views in Yosemite. An easy 2 mile jaunt from Glacier Point road.

Party included Zarathustraswife Lynda, daughter Alexa (18) and step-daughters Haley (8) and Heather (6). This was the first summit for Haley and Heather - who generally have to be bribed or dragged to walk a mile in the neighborhood. They were really good sports on this hike though!

My husband and I hiked this with our girls, 6, 8 and 18. The views were amazing for such a short easy hike.

Cross country skiing to Glacier Point when we decided to take this detour. Easy boot kick up the snow slope for grand views.

I'm a little embarrassed to say I'd never realized this dome was here, out of sight from the Valley. Walked to the top while in transit along the spectacular south-rim hike from Wawona Tunnel to Glacier Point and back down 4-mile trail. Big storm day, horizontal snow on the summit. Curious what routes have been put up on the attractive north face of the dome.

Wow.. There actually is a log for Sentinel Dome. :P
Unbeatable view from the top - it completes the scene from Glacier Pt but minus the crowds.

A fun and informative hike with an interpretive ranger. Bagged Ostrander Rocks afterward.

I have sat on top several times, but this day was special. I was alone for about an hour, the unspoiled views all to myself.

Still hurting from a car accident, I had a nice stroll over to Sentinel Dome from the parking lot on the easy to follow trail. The views were great. The traffic on Glacier Point Road to get there...not so great.

I went from the Taft Point Fissures to Sentinel Dome which is 2.3 miles. The trail is very beautiful, and it runs along the edge of Yosemite Valley. The trail ends at the scenic Sentinel Dome which features 360 degree views of Yosemite valley.

Independence Day hike, from Happy Isles > Nevada Falls > Panoramic Trail > Glacier Pt > Sentinel Dome > 4 Mile Trail. Amazing hike although valley views were obscured by smoke from a maintenance fire.

Took a stroll over here to escape the buses full of tourons at Glacier Point. Stunningly beautiful.

Although the views were just breathtaking, the 9-mile approach was definitely lengthy... Departed the roadway parking lot at 16.31, & returned around 18.37. Took an interesting 4th-class variation to the L of centre when coming from the road. Turns out the R-hand side is really mellow. One of the (if not THE) best views in The Valley- one can see everything from the Cathedral Rocks to El Cap to Yosemite Falls (all 3 of them) to Conness to Half Dome to Lyell to Ritter to..... Combination of snow, flowing falls, & solitude (I assume that the place is a relative madhouse in the summer) made this excursion particularly rewarding.

While checking out Glacier Point, we decided to hike up to Sentinel Dome. Several spots along the trail with awesome views. One of many great hikes in Yosemite.
