Description

Peak 11,357, aka Rafferty Peak, is an alpine granite wall in Yosemite National Park. The cirque towers over Nelson Lake, and consists of many different walls, towers, and peaks. Consult Secor's Sierra guidebook for more information.

Getting There

The most direct way from Toulumne Meadows is to hike the trail to Elizabeth lake (it start in the campground). When almost to the lake, branch off left on an unmarked trail that will take you South, up and over a pass, and down into the Echo Creek drainage.

You will need to get to Nelson Lake, which is on the next fork of Echo Creek to the East. This could be accomplished by hiking up and over a ridge, or following the trail until the two forks merge, then turning back north to Nelson Lake.

Once at the lake, the wall will be obvious.

Obviously, consult a topo map to supplement my meager description. Most of the "trails" referred to seem to be unmaintained trails, so they might be tough to follow.

As for approach time, I was with someone who sort of knew where we were going, and with full packs (climbing and bivy gear), it took us about 4 hours. Your time may very depending on how lost you get.
