Route Climbed: Sentinel Dome Trail Date Climbed: September 1997
This is a great "bang for the buck" in terms of scenery (awesome) vs. effort to get there (easy.) Nice 360 degree view of everything when you get to the top. I was disappointed that the gnarled pine tree is in such bad shape. There were around 8-10 people on top, not bad compared to all the hordes at Glacier Point.
Route Climbed: There's a choice? Date Climbed: August 1995
We spent the night on the summit, though I can't vouch for the legality of it. We bivied, no tents, food, or camping gear, just a couple bags on the ground, no 'improving'. If you want to try it I suggest similiar tactics so Ranger Bob doesn't start patrolling and give you the boot. We also came in late at night and left before the first tourists arrived with their monster cameras. Sitting in the full moon, with the waterfalls roaring in the distance makes this 'summit' worthwhile.
