Looking across Glacier Canyon toward the Dana Plat...


The second highest peak in Yosemite. There is a class 1-2 walk up that starts at Tioga pass. There are also some more technical climbs, like the Dana Couloir, and other climbs across Glacier Canyon on the Dana Plateau.

Getting There 

From Lee Vining, take highway 120, Tioga Pass rd., toward Yosemite N.P. Drive to Tioga Lake or Tioga Pass entrance. I think it's 11 - 12 miles.

Dana Couloir   California : Sierra Eastside : ... : Mount Dana
Dana couloir was a snow climb when I climbed it on 7-22-17. The couloir is about 40 degrees and only eases off near the top. It is approx. 1,200 feet long. There was snow all the way to the saddle at about 12,200'. Another 800' to summit and you can descend the hikers trail on the west side. Supposed to be one of the best snow/ice climbs in the Sierras. One of the best I've done....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
