THIS IS THE PLACE


I finally made it to Muir's Range of light and was genuinely blown away. We barely scratched the surface on this short trip but these were some of the best days I've spent outside.


The Matthes Crest (10920 ft) is a mile long fin of perfect white high country granite.



High Sierra campfire.


Cruising the slabs on Zee Tree in typically perfect Yosemite weather.


A beautiful hole on the Tuolumne River.



On Matthes Crest with the Echo Peaks behind.



The last pitch to the top of Matthes Crest.


Valley bouldering.


First pitch, SE Buttress Cathedral Peak.


Cathedral Peak (10940 ft) from the south. We climbed the SE Buttress ( right hand skyline, 5.7)


About to start the descent from Cathedral Peak with Eichorn's Pinnacle and Cathedral Lake in the background.


Washing off in Vogelsang Lake.


Descending from Vogelsang Pass.


Starting the descent from Blue Lake Pass.
