From parking area near the Tioga entrance station you walk two hours to the edge of a plateau and WHAM! You are hit with a 5000' drop all the way down to Mono Lake. It is one of the most sublime settings in Tuolumne and it is hard to resist canceling climbing plans and just taking in the view for five hours. To make things even better, the rock is perfect. The first few pitches climb ledgy and interesting features. The main event, however, is the last pitch. The vertical moves on perfect cracks and large square-cut ledges are almost as mind-blowing as the intense exposure. You will remember this pitch for a long time.
