Climbing in Yosemite

Yosemite

  • Yosemite
  • Not just a great valley, but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra. First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

  • Many of the roads in the park close because of heavy snow in winter; however, Yosemite Valley is open all year long

  • A few things to remember while hiking:
  • Stay on trails: taking shortcuts is dangerous and causes trail erosion.
  • Carry (and drink) plenty of water: a leading cause of injuries on the trail is dehydration. Be sure to treat river, stream, lake, or spring water.
  • Smoking while traveling on trails is prohibited, though you may smoke will stopped. (Crush out and dispose of cigarette butts in a trash receptacle.)
  • Horses and mules have the right of way on trails.
  • Pack out what you pack in.
  • Trails are not maintained nor are they regularly patrolled: travel carefully and at your own risk. There are 840 miles of trails and eight-miles of paved bike path in the Yosemite Valley.
  • Dogs and other pets, bicycles, strollers, and motor vehicles are only permitted on paved trails.
  • Do not hike or snowshoe in Nordic ski tracks. People on snowshoes, should walk alongside, but not in the ski trails.

Yosemite is famous for its high concentration of waterfalls in a small area. Numerous drops, glacial steps and hanging valleys in the park provide many places for waterfalls to exist, especially during April, May, and June (the snowmelt season).

Rock climbing is an important part of Yosemite. Camp 4, a walk-in campground in Yosemite Valley, was instrumental in the development of rock climbing as a sport. Climbers can generally be spotted in the snow-free months on anything from ten-foot-high (3 m) boulders to the 3,300-foot (1.0 km) face of El Capitan. Classes are offered by numerous groups on rock climbing.
