Giant Sequoia Climb October, 2002
A group of 10 people, led by John Traverso, climbed in the Shadow of the Giants.  This area is located in the Nelder Grove of Sierra National Forest, just south of Yosemite.  It is about 11 miles from the town of Oakhurst.

Nelder Grove is well-marked.  Traveling from Oakhurst north on Highway 41, take the Sky Ranch Road for about 7 miles.  Just after the pavement ends, turn left at the road with signs to Nelder Grove.  Two miles will bring you to a fork in the road where left will take you to the Shadow of the Giants Trail and right will take you to Nelder Grove Campground and adjoining trails.
