OverviewTawny Point (12,332 feet)
Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park
Sierra Nevada, California
Tawny Point is a fairly insignifcant hump just west of the Sierra Crest, north of Mount Whitney and south of Tyndall. It is class I from all directions. So why does such an insignificant hump deserve its own page on Summit Post? Because of the magnificent view!
Tawny Point has one of the best panoramic views of any summit the entire Sierra Nevada.
