      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

[TR] Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne - Tuolumne Meadows to White Wolf 7/14/2010

Trip: Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne - Tuolumne Meadows to White Wolf

 

Date: 7/14/2010

 

Trip Report:

Tuolumne39.JPG

 

I joined Joel and Sean for a fantastic 50k (~30 mile) point-to-point adventure run of the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne from Tuolumne Meadows to White Wolf in Yosemite NP. This area has intrigued me for some time and the scenery surpassed my lofty expectations.

 

We camped outside the park the night before and were able to hitch a ride from some gracious tourists from Spain almost immediately. The first part of the route is through the upper and lower Tuolumne Meadows to Glen Aulin High Sierra Camp with great views of the Echo Range and domes. Once in the canyon, there is a plethora of waterfalls and rapids along the Tuolumne River with granite everywhere! What makes this route more remote is the fact that there is no outlet from the bottom of the canyon. One must ascend over 4,000+ ft back to the ridge line at White Wolf. This ascend proved grueling in the heat of the day and after having already covered 24 rugged miles.

Approach Notes:

As a point-to-point, you need to either arrange for a ride from White Wolf to Tuolumne Meadows or walk up to Hwy 120 from White Wolf to hitch a ride to Tuolumne Meadows.

 

A 46.5 mile loop is possible out of White Wolf utilizing the Ten Lakes area and would make for a challenging adventure run.
