tioga cliff from the approach trail

Description 

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).

Getting There 

Buy the book.

This ain't no rinky-dink "sport" climb!Its got really good moves and fairly sustained climbing on good rock. It may be fully bolted with chains and biners on every bolt but...Don't blow the 3rd clip or it could be bad. Kind of hairy past the 3rd bolt (11+) too. Great movement with some rests sets you up for a tricky crux glide out right 3/4 of the way up. Get it!...[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.
