“A training ground for alpine rock climbing”
Mount Conness is a mountain in the Sierra Nevada range, to the west of the Hall Natural Area. Conness is on the boundary between the Inyo National Forest and Yosemite National Park. The Conness Glacier lies north of the summit. Conness is a training ground for alpine climbing since it utilizes all aspects of mountaineering: trails, scrambling, and glacier trekking; all at a high altitude for California. Usually climbers camp near Tioga Pass and begin the climb at dawn. It takes about a full day to summit. The summit block consists of class 2 scrambling along a knife edge ridge leading to the summit consisting of spectacular views to the east of the Conness Glacier and to the west toward Tuolumne Meadows.
