Okay, so it's on the highway and tons of tourists will gawk at you, but still, this is one of the most beautiful climbing settings anywhere. It rises about 500 feet right out of Lake Tenaya with beautiful views of the lake, Tenaya Peak, and many other Tuolumne features.

Slightly runout face climbing past a few bolts to a two bolt anchor.P4. More fun liebacking. The angle is much lower here, but placing pro is slightly awkward.
