Yosemite Valley’s world-famous rock walls draw climbers from around the globe. As soon as those climbers step off the Valley floor, they enter the Yosemite Wilderness.
Thanks to the interactive Ask a Climber program in Yosemite Valley, visitors can connect with the vertical wilderness without scaling a wall. In spring and autumn, climbing rangers offer daily programs in El Capitan Meadow; in July and August, they lead weekly walks. They also offer presentations to visiting school groups and help educate fellow climbers about environmental stewardship.
Whether zooming in on the walls through a telescope, learning about geology or getting a gear demonstration, Ask a Climber participants gain a deeper understanding of the park’s granite features — and the people who climb them.
Your support will help visitors of all ages connect with Yosemite’s vertical wilderness.
