    Route:Northwest Face
    Grade:moderate snow, 4th class
    Date:May 2021
    Partner(s): solo
    Notes:Another popular climb with an easy approach from either Tuolumne or the longer more scenic route from Rush Creek over Dononue Pass. Secors description talks of easier ground via the first reall gully left of the saddle. For my money the better way to go is to climb the intricate slabs and ledges on the northewest face proper. There are more than a few small cairns to mark the way, particularly so for the descent where your view down the route is not obvious. A short but solid route with a great view of Yosemite's alpine country.
    Extra:Only a sampling of images from the climb are shown here. Hence the link to the full album.
