Clouds Rest

Trip Stop: 

14-mile (RT) epic hike to the summit of Clouds Rest. The last 300 yards of the hike require walking across a narrow and precipitously edged ridge composed of piled sheets of granite resembling huge stacks of pancakes or a line of toppled dominoes, with terrifying drop offs on either side. The 360 degree views from the summit are worth it as all of Yosemite is sprawled out before you -Half Dome looming over Tenaya Canyon, North Dome, Mt. Hoffman, Yosemite Valley, the Clark Range, and all the Yosemite top hits. It was breathtaking.
