A Climber’s Guide to the High Sierra (1954), edited by Hervey H. Voge


Tioga Pass to Mammoth Pass

THE SOUTHERN PORTION of Yosemite National Park, and the Mount Dana-Minarets Wilderness Area of the adjacent National Forests, which together make up the section from Tioga Pass to Mammoth Pass, constitute a very popular area for climbers because of the varied terrain and the ready accessibility. Good roads lead to Yosemite Valley, Tioga Pass, and Minaret Summit, on the boundaries of this section. Descriptions of history, trail approaches, and topography are given in the individual areas, which are arranged as follows:

Yosemite Valley. The climbs are listed in geographical order, starting at the northwest corner of the valley.

The Cathedral Range and Eastward. This includes the Sierra Crest from Tioga Pass to Donohue Pass. The peaks are arranged in geographical order, from north to south, first in the Cathedral Range and then in the crest.

The Clark Range and Adjacent Peaks. This area, like that from Bond Pass to Tioga Pass, but unlike all others, has been arranged in alphabetical order.

The Minarets and the Ritter Range. Here again a north-south description of the peaks is given.

It has been indicated in Sketch 1 that the Main Crest from Island Pass Mammoth Pass is not considered in The Guide. Since there is very little possibility for real climbing in this short section of the crest, this omission will not be regretted by many.
