New Years on Mt Clark (4W)

Dec 31-Jan 3

Come enjoy the Yosemite high country in a different season. A tricky class-4 climb in summer, Mt Clark will be a real alpine challenge in winter. The long western approach up the Illilouette drainage should also make for a pleasant ski tour.

Hike from Valley up Muir Trail, don skis and head up Illilouette drainage to camp

Climb SE Arete (Class 3-4, rope, axe, crampons)

Possible climb of Starr-King on the way out, conditions permitting

Required: backcountry skis (snowshoes OK), avalanche beacon/probe/shovel, axe/crampons, rope/harness
