Ascent Trip Report

Departed Tenaya Lake/Sunrise Lake TH night before, caped at base of switchback climb to trail to Sunrise Lakes. Very hot and dry the following day, Was going to cap below louds Rest but had too little water. Pushed on to Sunrise creek/JMT intersection for the night. End of a very hot, dry day. Clouds Rest was superlative! Next day had Half Dome on my mind.
