First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

It is climbed less often than Hoffman, probably due to a more difficult approach.The mountain is in Mariposa County.There is rock climbing, on Tuolumne Peak.Tenaya Glacier had effects, at least near Tuolumne Peak, during the Wisconsin Glacial Stage, over-topping the ridge that connects Tuolumne Peak to Mount Hoffman, isolating both tops.
