Matthes Crest, Yosemite. Cathedral Range in background.  This is unglaciated high-country granite, which should be compared with the rounded, polished domes of Tuoluome Meadows and Yosemite Valley.  This rough rock was too high to be smoothed by the glaciers that swept over Fairview Dome, Basket and Half Domes.
