Non-climbers may simply enjoy a picnic lunch while watching the most elite on their way up El Capitan. If your interest surpasses your fear of heights, Yosemite Mountaineering School is a great place to “learn the ropes.” It’s open in Yosemite Valley all year, and at Tuolumne Meadows during the summer.
If you’re a climber, you already know more about climbing in Yosemite than we can tell you. If you’re a wannabee, you can hang out with the real people at Sunnyside Campground (now officially named “Camp 4″).
Please follow the Yosemite Guidelines for Seasoned Climbers before venturing out.
