Tips from the Publisher

  • Plan ahead for camping. Call 800-365-2267 for resevations in park campgrounds long before you arrive.
  • Winter climbing is fantastic, but be prepared for crowds on the classics.
  • Lightning is probably the biggest hazard in the park. Be off your routes in early afternoon if possible.
