Description 

Osprey Overhang can be seen from Tenaya Lake as a chunk of rock on the western skyline with a prominent south facing roof (the beak of the osprey).

Getting There 

Park at the Olmsted Canyon turnoff and hike through breaks in the cliffs up the hill to the east and north. Pretty hard to miss.

It is about an hour quasi-bushwhack approach for a short climb, but the summit views are awesome.
