      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Easy Yosemite Routes for Kids?

Recommended Posts

I'll be taking my boys (ages 9 & 14) on a road trip in July with a stop at Yosemite. Anyone have some info/beta on easy (5.4 - 5.6) routes in Yosemite?

If you go midweek to avoid the crowds, the SE Buttress on Cathedral Peak is the first suggestion that comes to mind.


Also ones that immediately come to mind: Conness West Ridge (3 pitches up to about 5.6, then loads and loads of 4th class), Conness North Ridge (a rappel down a 5.6 pitch, then great 4th class up to the summit), Tenaya Peak NW Buttress (5.5).


I mentioned just routes around Tuolumne, both because I prefer climbs to summits, and also because the valley will be awfully hot in July.
