Horseshoe lake is situated below a hillside that holds numerous granite outcrops. The original Horseshoe Slabs
is an area long popular with beginners and groups but more recently there have been a number of newer areas developed mainly around the Horseshoe Piles
section. Unlike the Slabs that are located next to the lake the other areas are located on the hillside to the south of the lake and are more easily accessed via a trail from the Lake George parking area.
The majority of the crags face north, which makes them ideal for the hotter summer months, but can mean they hold snow banks at their base long into the summer.
Nothing here is too steep and the majority of the climbs are in the 5.10 range, but the rock quality on all the crags is good, and you will be able to find plenty to keep you busy.
The area is located south of Horseshoe Lake. This is easily found by driving into the lakes basin from the town of Mammoth Lakes until the road ends at a large parking lot. For the crags listed under Horseshoe Piles
it is best to park at the Lake George parking area.
