July 13, 2013: Dayhike to Clouds Rest from Sunrise Trailhead. Clouds Rest was my first backpack and peak in Yosemite, and since the memories have faded I have wanted to get back to this classic summit.

And a zoomer on that pretty, pretty NW ridge of Clark. I think it is currently beyond my pay grade, but that doesn't stop me from lusting after that beautiful line.
As I headed down I was shocked to have the catwalk ridge to myself for a brief moment. Plenty wide, but the big dropoff to both sides spooks a lot of people not used to the exposure. Kind of like Conness.
Sat here for a while. I could look at this all day.
A nice view of Sunrise peak from the trail on the descent. Hm, next target?
