Trip Report: Yosemite High Route (August & September, 2019)
January 28, 2020 07:47AM
Hey everyone, I wanted to share a trip report from a trip I did this past summer. I hiked the Yosemite High Route in two parts in August and September. You can find the TR here: https://www.iain-macdonald.com/yosemite-high-route-trip-report Enjoy!

Wow.

Excellent report and beyond amazing pictures from an epic tour of the Yosemite high country. Thank you for taking the time to do such a detailed write up... enjoyed reading while following along on the topo map!

Ok. Cool. Yosemite is Better

This was my issue with publishing a route:

"There were about 20 entries this year, all citing the YHR, including 5 or so thru hikes, a pretty big increase in visitation for this minor peak."

Why I quit putting detailed things on the internet. And stopped posting trip reports.
And why I was a bit irked for what I deem a money grab.
Personally I've only ever seen people in that area when I was climbing Mt. Clark one year.
I'll probably get blasted for this. But I love this place more than pretty much anything.
So I hope that good comes out of it I guess and more people love it and take care of it
and, of course, I don't find loads of fire rings next time thru.

(and yes, I've done all this and a insane amount more in case you're wondering)

Happy Trails

Damn. Was up Quartzite in 2009 Oct. Time flies.

Anyway, yeah, I'm a "get off my lawn" old guy now. (I'm not THAT old tho really)

Luckily Yosemite has about 20 other "High Routes"

Only 20? The nice thing about Yosemite (and SEKI, and everything in between... or pretty much anything between the two Kennedy Meadows) is that almost any line you draw on a map that goes by any number of places that look like they would be interesting is 1) a do-able "high route" and 2) will most likely be interesting. Bonus: no guidebook required (but a copy of High Sierra Peaks and Passes can sometimes be useful...)

I enjoyed the trip report and the photos. I've been near many of those place- the ones near the trail. It's nice to see pictures of the areas I'm unlikely to reach.
Oh- Chick-on- I promise, no fire rings.
