By Michael Philbin, Writer February 1, 2024

When I entered Yosemite for the first time, it was a jaw-dropping experience. We had just been driving up a winding road for what felt like an hour, and as soon as we cleared the top, I saw the largest cliff face I’d ever seen. Little did I know that it would be one of the smallest ones I’d see...
