To be honest In and Out is a pretty good employer, they pay more than any other fast food. It is the only socal chain where you will see mostly teenagers working


With outstanding attitudes every time I've gone, never forgetting to supply the little ones with stickers.

In n Out also has the whitest staff on earth. Go to the one in Hayward and somehow 95% of the staff consists of white teenagers.

As far as fast food goes, Carl's Jr has better burgers anyways. 5 guys even better and is probably going to knock christan burger off it's pedestal in CA.


Oh climbing.... yeah right... Tons of stuff in Yosemite no doubt but there is good stuff outside the park, all the stuff south of Yosemite, foothills stuff, Sonora Pass, Cal Domes, Tahoe, east side of the Sierra and on and on.

Umm, you want a real burger, stop at Old Priest Station on the way up 120 and get a grass fed delicacy!

Take hwy 4 thru copperopolis to shave some time off the drive from sac. And of course take the Old Priest rd shortcut on 120 and the station restaurant is at the top.

"In n Out also has the whitest staff on earth. Go to the one in Hayward and somehow 95% of the staff consists of white teenagers."

The one in San Bernardino is staffed mostly with Mexicans.

My guess is their staff reflects the community.

Big Mike is coming to The Valley for his first visit, and this is the best beta you can give?

During my first trip up to "Squeemish" I overheard a pair of locals discussing their own upcoming 1st Valley trip:

"El Capitan," one gravely described to her partner, "is their Grand Wall."

Reid's Guide will do. There's long routes, short ones; easy and desperate. If this were my 1st trip to The Valley, and I was comfortable on-sighting 5.9 fingers and hands, I gun up the first 5 pitches of Central Pillar of Middle Cathedral, and I'd show before 9am, so as not to follow another party.

If you want to work up to that length, then the Cookie, or Reed's would offer a high selection.

For face and friction, the rock on the south side is more compact than than of the north, which is a bit more decomposed from sun exposure.

Tuolumne, and Southern Yosemite can wait for another time. Autumn is the Valley's premier season.

I understand there are plenty of vacancies over at Curry Village - hell, now I'm getting into the act!

+1 Fet's suggestion

Sunset, on the deck, at Priest Station Cafe after a day on the rock

Don't forget to mention Supertopo, the beverage is free with a meal.

Get gas and groceries (I mean beer) then from 99 take Hwy 4 east, in Copperopolis go right on Main St. / O'Byrnes Ferry Rd. At end go left on 120 then a quick right on 120. Or you can take 120 through Oakdale, it's about 15 minutes longer but there's grocery stores and restaurants there.

Yes take Old Priest Grade unless you are in an RV. If you start to get possessed take Old Priest and New Priest and that should clear it up.

I'm telling you, forget the burgers. Most of those taco buses are run on a totally small scale, independent, authentic, and just plain good, basis. From my standpoint of knowledge of the food industry and human nutrition, Go with the taco trucks. They just don't have big signs on the freeway, you kinda have to look around.
