Description

Long routes up the huge ~3000 ft slabby face of Clouds Rest. Although roughly north facing, it gets sun in the summer. Routes have been climbed since the 60s, but I personally only know of one "established" route. The face is more than a mile wide so there are potentially many more. Tenaya Canyon is the last real "remote" place in the park so please tread gently!

Getting There

Park at Sunrise Trailhead & parking area in Tuolumne. Hike along the normal cloud's rest trail and then cut off right following Tenaya Creek to Pywiak Falls. Then simply contour along the slabs. Sticky rubber approach shoes help. The approach is approximately 6 miles.
