Description

We shuttled a car from Ellery Lake to the Tuolumne Meadows Gate, and hiked up, essentially following the park boundary to Dana Peak.

Drop down from Dana Peak through the steep and tight Dana Couloir and across the glacier. From the bottom, either run it out back to the car near the gate or hike up to Dana Plateau and get another great run down Ellery Bowl.
