Tuolomne Meadows (Yosemite National Park)


Yosemite National Park offers climbing from 90' crags to 3,000'-plus big walls, and everthing in between. The boundary between cragging and climbing is ill defined of course, so it's really up to you what you want to call a climb. The cragging routes listed below are all located in the Tuolomne Meadows section of the park.
