DescriptionThis area is situated at the northern end of the Sierra Eastside, and is unique in its nature given that it has some of the most easily accessible sport, trad, bouldering and ice climbing on cliffs that are more often than not empty.
Perhaps climbers are too eager to get to the better known climbs in Tuolumne Meadows, but make no mistake the climbing to be found west from Lee Vining along the Tioga pass is worth a visit or two.
In recent years quality sport routes have been developed on a number of cliffs along the Tioga Pass road in addition to a few bouldering areas along the valley floor.
In the cooler winter months the convenient ice climbing venues are sometimes busier than the cliffs in the summer as climbers take advantage of the easy access and fun 1 and 2 pitch climbs.
The Third Pillar of Mount Dana can be found under the Dana Plateau section.
