Mt. Dana, Third Pillar Details:
Along the east side of the Dana Plateau is a striking buttress of rock with one of the all time classic Sierra alpine routes. The route is normally done in 6 pitches. The first pitch is 5.7 and each pitch gets progressively more difficult all the way to the final moves that top out on the plateau. This climb has great views of Mono Lake throughout.
