Cruising JBs Seam while the pups enjoy a bone.


The Bachar Boulders provides a great selection of problems. Most of the problems have good flat landings, although some are definitely highballs, so caution, and a spotter, is recommended. Like a Virgin and JB's Seam are probably the two classics of the crag.

Many of the problems have no names, but a few do.

Getting There 

From the June Lake junction on the 395, take the dirt road (1S35) directly across the from the gas station. Head East for .4 miles, and then take a left fork and follow the road for .6 miles. Take a left turn and after .1 mile park up in front of a huge rotten log.

The boulders can be seen to the North through the trees.

JBs Seam V5 6C  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Central Sector
The seam starts with two small sidepulls, which are used to gain a small sharp finger pocket. Sort your feet and make tracks for a good pocket higher on the seam. What remains isn't as hard as what went before, but you'll need a cool head to complete the tick. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

The eastern approach road (as described here) is now blocked to traffic.

In order to reach the area, take the first left turn, and follow this for about half a mile then follow the road as it swings right. Continue along this road until you raches the large log and the parking area.
