Sequoia NP - Moro Rock

In a super fast speed we climbed up Moro Rock (6,725ft/2050m), a large granite dome located in the Giant Forest area. The Moro Rock is the highest point for many miles to the east and west. There are around 400 steep stone steps leading to its top, so climbing it up can be exhausting. However, the views from the top are so fantastic that they are worth the effort.
