West Slope(Class I) - Enjoy a day of hiking up the second highest Peak in Yosemite. On the summit, peak identifications will be made, as well as climbing histories on various peaks. Bring the binoculars for this one.

Third Pillar of Dana(III 5.10a) - Falling from the Dana Plaqteau, this magnificent arete can easily be viewed from Highway 120 as a white pillar splitting the sky. Uniquely, the climb is approached by a trail that leads to the top. A series of spectacular rappels leads to the start of the climb. The difficulty gradually increases until the final overhanging crux.
