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?!
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.

AWESOME Route! Easily noticeable for the prominent 100 M wide crack system and another 300 M of cool face/crack climbing. Could be climbed in the morning and followed by Saber Ridge solo in the afternoon. That would be an awesome day in the mountains! Could also be linked with a climbing trip to Angel Wings or Cherubim Dome. If you like varied climbing, good rock and no lines, this climb is for you! Pitch 1 - 5.8-9, 100 ft - slab climb below a big overhang while protecting in the crack on your l...[more] Browse More Classics in California
