Tuolumne Meadows Bouldering Rock Climbing

Scattered throughout Tuolumne Meadows are a number of small (generally each has no more than 50 problems) bouldering areas. All of them feature the stellar rock you would expect. Along with the amazing rock you also get idyllic settings and weather which is often cooler than other bouldering areas which you may be thinking of visiting in the near vicinity.
Each area has its own unique character ranging from the famous Tuolumne knobs featured at The Knobs
, to a style not often seen at The Gunks
to perfect granite and a flowing river at the Puppy Dome Boulders.
What makes this even better is the fact that the majority of the areas are all accessible via a short stroll from Highway 120!
Tuolumne Meadows is accessed via highway 120, either from the west or via Tioga Pass from the east. The Tioga Pass road is generally closed (snowfall) from fall through mid to late May or so (sometimes later, depending on the snow).

A 25' rattly fist to cupped hands, roof-crack boulder problem. The crux lies at about the 15 foot mark, and the crack never gets more than four feet off the ground. Unless you have big fists, the only solid jams are about a foot deep in the crack. In my opinion, this is one of the best crack problems in the park. WAY worth the hike (and drive if your coming from the valley). ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
