Deadmans 1 is less than 2 minutes from the highway...


Terrific bouldering area right off the highway, yet secluded and pleasant. Quite a few classic tall problems on good volcanic rock. There are three distinct areas the further west you go from the highway, yet most people are satisfied with the first pullout. This is a great place to bring a beginning or intermediate boulderer. Free camping!

Getting There 

Go north from Mammoth on the main highway. Take a left just before you reach the top of Deadman's Summit.

Deadman's Corner 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Center Block
The route climbs the obvious corner on the right side of the main tower. A thin finger crack up a steep corner eases off in difficulty after 20' or so.Since it is a crack and climbs like one, I let it keep the 10c rating, but for the boulderers out there it goes at V1....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
