A fun back country route. Just stay on the ridge as much as possible for the best climbing on the best granite.


Tuolumne Meadows backcountry. There are a few different methods for approaching Conness, but the trail(s) from Tioga Pass works...There's also a good way starting just west of Lembert Dome going up to Young Lakes...then it's cross country through to Conness creek, which if followed all the way to its source will land you in Roosevelt lake. Hiking southeast from here will get you into the vicinity of the West Ridge of Conness.


if you plan on roping up for the whole climb, just bring a regular rack...Most of the climb can be soloed or simul-climbed at easy albeit moderate 5th class high country climbing.
