Olmsted Canyon Rock Climbing
Beautiful little pond on the approach to Tideline.
An awesome crack arena with some good bouldering as well. Beautiful setting in a canyon that provides the illusion of solitude.
Park just past Olmsted Point at a dirt turnout near the mouth of the canyon.
Weather station 5.9 miles from here

Osprey overhang can be seen from Tenaya lake as a chunk of rock on the western skyline with a prominent roof. This is Osprey Overhang. The regular route chimneys through a large break in the roof. To get there, follow an obvious corner with some mildly awkward 5.7 stemming and liebacking.It is about an hour quasi-bushwhack approach for a short climb, but the summit views are awesome.See the awesome updated (4th ed.)

Just a very minor note - it's actually Olmsted Canyon, not Olmstead. The 1986 Reid/Falkenstein guide had that right, but every edition since has had most mentions spelled with an a (but always at least one spelled correctly).
