Description

Sixteen (easy) miles in the Sequoia National Park, stands the Prism. A proud formation in an incredible alpine setting. Views of Mt. Stewart, Angel Wings and Hamilton Domes to the south are stunning, but Glacier Ridge and Cloud Canyon are also awesome to look at.
Quality of rock on the Prism and neighboring Saber Ridge (a must if you are in the area) brings up the question, why did it take us climbers such a long time to discover such a gem?!
Always check road conditions and peregrine closures Details

Getting There

Take the High Sierra Trail from Crescent Meadow, or from the Wolverton trail-head. Hike about 12-13 miles and take the cut off to Tamarack Lake, which is near Bearpaw Meadow.
If lost, ask the staff at Bearpaw Meadow Ranger Station/lodging for directions. The formations are located about a mile short of Tamarack Lake on the North Side of the canyon. They face South and get sun all day, so it is possible to climb them at any point during the season as long as the trail-head is accessible.
