The Sierra Nevada covers a huge geographical area. Dividing this into Southern and Northern regions is an attempt to create a more logical, manageable, and hopefully user-friendly structure. The Sonora Pass Highway (108) area is used as a boundary between Southern and Northern regions.
Tollhouse Rock, Courtright Reservoir, Yeti Dome (aka Musick Mountain) and Wilderness Wall are approached via Hwy 168 out of Fresno.
