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.

This route could probably be done as one long pitch, but we broke it down into two.P1 - Begin by the obvious short finger crack with a bolt beneath it. Do a couple of interesting moves to clip the first bolt, motor up the finger crack (optional finger-sized cam), and then follow bolts to anchors.P2 - Go up and slightly left, following a crack system and bolts to an anchor. LO or rap to P1 and then rap to ground....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

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.
