Yosemite Valley
Not in the Platte!  This mystery dome is about twenty miles up the Merced River from Yosemite.  We found it during an epic backpack from Mammoth to Yosemite.  I put a picture here thinking that those who like hiking heavy loads into Lost Creek might be interested in this golden giant. Very sunny, so not a good summer expedition.  Way past Merced Lake, where the plane full of weed crashed in the early 1970s.  Maybe even a mile past Washburn lake. I didn't take good photo notes.   <br /> <br />Has it has been climbed? There are no journal reports, and I scanned it with binoculars, finding no slings.  In my opinion, it should be rappel descended to avoid a heinous looking gully/bushwack descent.  Also, in my opinion it should be climbed and hand drilled (wilderness rules) by someone else. Please email me when done, or if you need help.
