Terrific atmosphere, great rock: a nice place to build lots of good memories.
I took most of these snapshots about 10 years ago, while running around with Bruce Hawkins: (RIP Bro).

Post up folks:
Impressions?
Fave routes?
Pictures?
Stories?

Best climbing on earth, or that's how it seems while you're there.

From the wayback machine: Don Knight and John Byrd getting ready to climb, 1970.

Moacs, tied slings and Clog wedges. We don't rack up like this any more.

Tarbuster, I love the shot of Oz.(Gram Traverse) and Hobbit Book.
Link-up for the everyman.
Great pics!
I do miss that that place.
P.S. I've done the bellyflop four times on Hoodwink's "Roof".
Roger Breedlove, I dig that climb, it's got a great view.
Muchas gracias!!!
Racing a storm on Great Pumpkin is my greatest Tuolumne memory, although many are fond.

From Lucky Streaks:

Looking East:


Keep an eye on the clouds while in Tuolumne:


Belay off this spooky flake if you miss the traverse:


Not much for pro up to the crater out left, then across to the finishing crack:

Looking up Hetch Hetchy:

I met Richard Grode at a party. Your a climber?, says I. Will you take me climbing? Yup! We were in Toulumne the following weekend.

Golf Ball route was the first climb of my life. The following day Richard took me up Cathedral Peak and I was HOOKED! Sitting on the summit of Cathedral, the vortex of Toulumne, was a religious experience. That was 17 years ago.

Without question my favorite Yosemite location......

Watercolor version of aspens


The ever present Lembert Dome


A buddy near the top of Tenaya


Those ever present details we take for granted


Impossible not to relax up there


Cathredral Lakes area


An old picture but typical of the right way to end a great day

There is no doubt that Tuolumne Meadows is my favorite place on the planet. It is sacred and has been for my whole life. The Soda Springs enclosure and bench just outside of it is the center of the universe.

Nice thread Roy, and nice photos, all. It is, undoubtedly, the best place in the world.

Lynn Hill on Scorpion, circa 1979.
