Peaks north of Olmsted Point, Yosemite

Peaks North of Olmsted Point

To see these mountains from the Olmsted Point area, you need to climb the dome across the road to the north, proceed along the ridge to the next mountain eastward, and then hike most of the way around the back of the mountain. Which sounds like a lot, but it's only a mile or so altogether. From the Ten Lakes trail you'll find a wider view without the foreground range getting in the way, but you have to hike six miles to get there.
