Restoring Popular Climbing Trails – Planet Granite is a proud sponsor! And your membership to PG helps us support these guys!

As part of Planet Granite’s giving program, we’ve donated $5,000 to the Yosemite Conservancy to help fund trail building days in both Yosemite Valley and Tuolumne Meadows.  Just last month, PG Sunnyvale manager, Eliot Carlsen, headed up to Tuolumne and joined in the morning climber coffee.  In the past year, we have helped fund the rebuilding of climbing trails leading up to Royal Arches, Bishop’s Terrace and more!   If you’re interested in helping out, contact the Yosemite Conservancy for their next trail building dates!

Every summer, I head to one of my favorite climbing destinations, the idyllic Tuolumne Meadows.  With its beautiful alpine environment, spectacular vistas and remote feel, the Meadows always inspires my sense of adventure and passion for climbing.  Because of this, it is no wonder why Tuolumne continues to grow in popularity.  Over the years it has seen an increase in climbers and therefore foot traffic leading up to our favorite domes and crags.  In response, and with the help of sponsors such as the Yosemite Conservancy and Planet Granite, the Yosemite Climbing Rangers Ben Doyle and Jesse McGahey, have been working on improving and maintaining these trails.  Along with many climbing stewards and volunteers, this beautiful weekend saw one of the many trail building days in Tuolumne.  On this day, they were working on the trails leading to Medlicott Dome.  Pictures by Joseph Denicola.
