tioga cliff from the approach trail
Southeast facing wall under the HWY with very cool and hard bolted and mixed routes (take some gear for most routes). In the sun until 1:30ish. Follow the directions in the Reid/Falkenstein book...The deproach is not as bad as its written up or looks (the descent to Third Pillar is WAY worse).
Park at a pullout 8.2 miles up 120 from 395. Just east of the green bridge. An old info display entitled "Don't Fence Me In" confirms you're at the right spot. Hop the guard rail and descend via a steep climber's' trail. 10 minutes to the first climbable route on the first wall (the Tioga Wall), 20-25 minutes to the furthest routes/walls.

Crack and face moves up the middle of the slab. Difficulties are usually around bolts and are well protected. An obvious flake marks the start of this climb that is longer than it looks.Apparently there are two pitches following the first, but I only did the first. They are described as Pitch 2: 5.8 and Pitch 3: 5.9, both protected similarly to the first pitch....[more] Browse More Classics in California

Slightly below and looker's left of the Tioga Cliff lies the Gold Wall. Awesome, varied sport and trad climbing. Technically a part of the Tioga Cliff, but located under "Gold Wall" in the Tuolumne Meadows section of "Destinations" on this site.
