Date Climbed: Apr 12, 2008


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.

After a long hike the day before (North Dome) we wimped out on another long hike, so we drove around to the trail from Glacier Point Rd. The best views of the valley imo.

...so I might as well sign it. Want to really punish yourself? Tack this onto a trip up the Four Mile Trail and then descend the Pohono Trail. Nasty!

Peak Baguette

Nice 18+ mile RT XC Ski trip from Badger Pass - amazing 360 degree winter-scape snow-dusted views, but was warm enough that the waterfalls were flowing. Loved having this beautiful summit all to myself on an absolutely perfect day. Life is good.

Easy walk, gorgeous views, be sure to include the fissures and make a loop.

Sorry to hear that the tree is gone!

Started the climb just after watching the sunrise over half dome from a pull out. Easy hike. Didn't see a soul the entire time i was on the trail or on the summit, i guess mostly because much of the trail was still covered in snow, and it was very early in the morning.

Lengthen it by going to the fissures on the backside. Not as many people do the loop. You won't have solitude, but it is quieter.

Nice little hike. Had to trick my mom into doing it. Just wanted to stretch my legs before Half Dome. Great view from the top.

Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2005


The sunset from Sentinel Dome can't be beat - you get the alpenglow on Half Dome and the rest of the Sierra Peaks, yet can also watch the sun go down at the same time - a beautiful 360 degree view. Has to the best view for the least work in Yosemite (not counting Glacier Point).
