Between the populous climbing destinations of Yosemite and the Tahoe area lies a more obscure section of the Sierra Nevada. It includes better known areas such as Table Mountain and the Calaveras Dome Area, as well as seldom visited or climbed mountain rock. Like all regions the span the breadth of the Sierra Nevada, it can be climbed in all seasons by moving to a currently comfortable elevation.
The three main trans-Sierra highways of Carson Pass (highway 88), Ebbetts Pass (highway 4) and Sonora Pass (highway 108) are used to reach these areas by visitors.
