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.

A real gem and arguably one of the best routes (and its fully trad!!) at the cliff! One of the better routes of the grade/style in the area! Way better (and more solid) than it looks. Definitely has cleaned up since the first time I was on it maybe 10 years ago!Steep blocks and 5.9 jamming gets you to a funky section with cool moves up and left (Red Alien size in the low flare -- #0 TCU or #00 TCU (better) in the middle of the 10d-ish moves). A 5.10 section with good gear links into ...[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.
