Mount Starr King with some of its neighboring dome...
A set of three granite domes visually dominating most of the canyon of the Illilouette. The northern dome is the tallest, and is where climbing routes have been established. Lines climb Starr King from all directions, so one can choose somewhat based on weather and time of day. The California Geological Survey called Starr King and Half Dome unclimbable in the late nineteenth century, and both were climbed for the first time shortly after.
A network of pack trails lead from trailheads along Glacier Point Road to the vicinity of Starr King. Once in sight, it's hard to lose. Summitpost
and a discussion on Supertopo
helped my party get there.
