Nestled in the Sierra Mountains, Tuoulumne Meadows is a beautiful summertime destination. The problems are not highly concentrated, nor is there a wide variety, but the landings are generally good and the rock is solid.


The Tuolumne boulders are located in Yosemite National Park and entrance fees are $20 per vehicle for a week. Because of bears, proper food storage is absolutely necessary.


Because of its high elevation, Tuolumne is an excellent summertime destination, though the mosquitoes can be awful. The Tioga Pass into Tuolumne Meadows is closed from first snowfall until late spring.


The Tuolumne Meadows campground has over 300 sites and is open to from July through late September. Sites are $20 a night and half can be reserved online ( There are also several campgrounds in the Inyo National Forest, between Yosemite Park and Lee Vining, which may be open earlier in the season and have lower rates.


There is a small grocery store and grill located in Tuolumne Meadows. In Lee Vining, the Mobile gas station has an excellent restaurant called the Whoa Nelly Deli and the Latte Da Café has wireless. The nearest large grocery store (Vons) is in Mammoth Lake.


The boulders are granite and many have large feldspar crystals. Glaciers have moved most to their current positions.


Tuolumne Meadow is a long way from exciting night life, but has a great lake to swim in and excellent hiking trails.
