Saw this on Instragram, any guesses?

Ledge trail?

It seems a bit high for that. Maybe the side of Sentinel Dome?

I haven't been to Sentinel Dome in a while but I don't remember any side of the dome looking like that and HalfDome is too low in that picture. Maybe it was taken somewhere on the Pohono Trail? I usually get to the top of Sentinel by parking on the side of the Glacier Pt road and walking up the service road so I have not been on the Pohono Trail below Sentinel Dome. Maybe the Pink One will be able to give us a answer.

I was going to say Ledge Trail, and maybe its just at the spot where you turn into the gully, in other words where Staircase Falls comes out of the gully and starts the staircasing down towards Curry.
But I think wherever is right...this is shot from just a bit higher. So when you come out of the gully, if you head straight towards Glacier Point (rather than going up to the 4 Mile Trail to the snack shop and then heading north to Glacier Point) there is a little bit of an accessible ridge that sticks out to the north. Maybe 250 yards west of Glacier Point. My guess is there. Or, then again, maybe the top of the exposed part of the Ledge Trail.

Here is the little ridge just below and west of Glacier Point


And here is the somewhat lower, top of the exposed part of the Ledge trail, before heading into the gully.

Could be somewhere on the Four Mile Trail.

Bearproof's ledge trail looks the closest...look at Half Dome compared to Clouds Rest and the diving board. Plus Mount Watkins.
