Interesting Facts & Highlights

Yosemite

We accessed from our campsite at Tilden and climbed the back side with relative ease. Great views up and down Jack Main Canyon and across the Yosemite landscape.

Named after Hiram Martin Chittenden a military engineer that worked on Yosemite road construction by R.B. Marshall of the USGS. Lt. McLure identified this peak as Jack Main Mt. in reference to the canyon west of the peak. Hiram was also a history author, best known for The American Fur Trade of the Far West (1902).
