Emigrant Lake climbing is is accessible year round, except part of Aqua Wall that is submerged when water levels are high. The crag sees sun for the majority of the day making it nice to take a swim in the lake. Crowds are minimal, but there are occasionally classes that take up the majority of the upper climbs.

Routes range from mostly moderate climbs, under 10a, but there are about one of each grade through 12c. Almost all the climbs can be easily toproped or lead, mostly sport a few trad.

Getting There 

Located at the north end of Emigrant Lake. Can be accessed through main park entrance($3 fee). Drive to past the camping area and boat launches to the back of the RV camping area where there is a gravel turn out by an outhouse. Park here and walk down the trail to the East. Stay on trail for a 10 minute hike there will be a climber trail to the right and you can see Poison Oak Wall above. Continue on trail for Ren and Aqua wall.

Can also be accessed via a boat by anchoring in the cove next to the obvious wall at the northern end of the lake.
