3000 foot granite dome in the San Joaquin river canyon, if you like getting away from it all, and want to climb alone, this is the place for you.

Getting There 

3 ways to get there, one is from Kaiser Pass, or South Fork trail off minarets road, or from Granite Creek trailhead, either way it's a long hike to the river floor.

Climbing Season
