Description 

This small and all but forgotten area lies in a narrow canyon above Dale's Camp. Included only vaguely in the original topo guides to Bishop, this area has been left out of the new guidebook completely. Still, there are a few gems here for the curious.

Getting There 

Drive out past Dale's Camp. Continue on the dirt road past a spur road that takes you uphill to the south (and goes past another obscure bouldering area known as the Glass House.) The main road continues up a canyon, heading vaguely toward the Bardini Boulders which lie on the other side of the ridge. Look for an obvious side canyon to your right (north.) Park here and hike up into the canyon. The canyon is quite narrow at first but soon opens up into a small valley strewn with boulders.

Climbing Season

For the Buttermilk Country area.

Weather station 4.3 miles from here

Silvia Plath V6 7A  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Hall of Mirrors
Up the hill from Approaching Silence are a handful more problems, the most striking of which is Silvia Plath. This line ascends a right facing flake on a flawless porcelain wall. Cruxy to get started, and puzzling up high as the flake peters out into blank porcelain slab. The height and proximity of a large rock behind you make the top moves very committing....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
