Camped at the top of Clouds Rest  Sucess!

Camped at tht top of Clouds Rest on my 8th day of 11day backpacking trip. It was so beautiful watching the Sunset and Sunrise from the peak. Only the problem was there were tons of mosquite out there and I got to stay in the tent until sun goes down.

2nd Peak of the Day  Sucess!

Climbing Alone to Cloud's Rest

I'm going hike Cloud's Rest for the first time this July. I have nobody to hike it with. Hiking alone has it's own dangers. I have questions. 1) Should I worry about hiking alone on this? 2) How do I find somebody to hike with? If you could respond to my email address, I'd sure appreciate it! THANKS!!!

Re: Climbing Alone to Cloud's Rest

You should have no problem with this hike in July no matter which direction you start, Tanaya Lake or Happy Isles. Take a light jacket, water and a filter. It normally takes us between 8 and 12 hours to complete and while the view is amazing the hike itself is not hard at all.

From Tenaya  Sucess!

Normal route from Tenaya Lake. Perhaps the best views for a class 1 peak in Yosemite.

a perfect day  Sucess!

I day-hiked the trail from Tenaya Lake and back on a late September Friday. There were few other hikers that day, and I had the summit to myself for over an hour. The panoramic view is wonderful.

My second SPS peak  Sucess!

A bit of a haze in the valley. Great view otherwise. I liked Clark Peak a lot.

deserving of the effort

Everyone who visits YNP should do this peak. The views in every direction are amazing and the hike will not dissapoint.

JMT   Sucess!

From Toulumne Meadows past Cathedral Peak over Clouds Rest and picked off Half Dome on the way to the valley. Perfect weather

Cool, cloudy, but pretty day  Sucess!

With a big storm blowing in, this might have been the last day in 2009 for a non-winter ascent. Hazy, cloudy day (high clouds), which created some interesting views from the summit, definitely spectacular.

Tenaya Lake-Clouds Rest-Half Dome- Yosemite Valley  Sucess!

Hiked with friends and my 3 boys, 11, 9 & 9 years old. Fun day, although Half Dome was too crowded, but what else to expect on a weekend. On this day someone hiked up Half Dome and committed suicide, and Helo 551 flew up and landed on the summit to pick him up. The helo had come and gone by the time we got up there.

A Walk to Remember  Sucess!

Part of a 2 day backpack with one of my best friends, Anna. Amazing camping and and excellent airy summit. The Yosemite fires were raging, bringing visibility down, but mental clarity was truly at its finest thanks to the magic of this peak.

From Tenaya Lake  Sucess!

Left from TH at 6am with Felix. Cold for this time of the year - 29 degrees. Had summit and great views to ourselves (great view of valley, upper yosemite, etc..) for 15 minutes until another party arrived. Saw lots of people on the way down.
