Fun walk up the granite near the summit. Views all around the Meadows up to the high peaks were the essence of Yosemite. Not too jazzed about some visitors trampling grass near the TH... the Park's popularity has become a curse as well as a blessing.
I waltzed up the south face within minutes, not sure why I bothered to carry a pack. Great views and good to get out a week after surgery. I know I climbed some junk on the NW side before but it was worthless, so why mention it?
Scrambled up the south/southwest side and found some pretty fun lines.
On the way home from climbing Mt. Dana, I stopped here. Scrambled up the south side and had many memories come rushing in of bouldering and toproping in my teens. Then, I was struck by just how many friends over the years I've shared this viewpoint of the Meadows with. A glorious spot when you have it to yourself.
Short approach so there were several people going up the dome on this day.
good views up top, a bit higher than the highway, but just as easy to get to!
Walked up and did laps on the left side topropes with my brother, girls and a friend of my daughter's. A beautiful day. Also hiked across returning from a Sierra Challenge Peak in 2011.
I've scrambled up this a couple times while passing through. Great rest place for a beer with a view.
Wow, with Tioga Pass was still open how can you pass up the chance to hike up something in Tuolumne Meadows on New Years? There were plenty of hikers taking advantage of this rare opportunity.
Quick hike from Tioga Road with awesome views. Great place to get out of the car and enjoy nature.
to reach the summit via Wildcat Point and Cold Mtn. This was a bonus peak on Day 3 of the Sierra Challenge. Trip Report
Quick but beautiful hike up on a gorgeous sunny and cold morning in October. No one around at this time during the week. Beautiful views from the top. A must-do when you drive along Tioga Road.
After a day of wandering climbing, enjoying aquatic features, and of course the views, a probing free solo with granjero lead us to this lofty summit. One of the best sunsets I have experienced, and the panoramic views are beyond amazing...
you can see practically 200 miles from this lofty peak
Next time I'm taking a book and a bottle of wine. Could have stayed all day.
Climbed it twice in one weekend. The first time on the 17th with my buddy PJ. We went up the south-east slope. The second time on the 18th with my good friend Peter Francev. We went up the Men At Work route. Good views from the top. I felt like I was in the center of the world.
Put up a couple ropes on the "e" and "f" routes in supertopo. Three kids all got lots of fun climbs in a couple hours. 60M rope barely long enough with long slings on "f".
Had some time to kill so went looking for the alleged 5.11 toprope route that is listed in Supertopo.
did this with my climbing buddies Keith and Anthony on the way home from climbing Clark Canyon near Mammoth Lakes. We tried to keep it harder than a simple walk up. The polished granite added some fun obstacles. cool vantage of the TM area from the top. also happened to be real windy up there.
"Geez Mr. park ranger, sorry!" Bullhorned to a halt taking a short cut across the restricted area to the dome 'cause of a foot injury.
