From Sacramento take 80 east to the 20 and head west. Turn right on Bowman Lake Rd. and follow it until the signs for Carr and Feeley Lake point you in the right direction. Stay on this dirt road taking the path most traveled until you reach the parking lot which may have many cars in it due to the backpackers. The last 1/4 mi. of the road is a little rough but it's not too bad for cars if you drive slow. Hike past Feeley Lake a couple of miles to Island Lake. There will be boulders around you, now find the good ones!
Quality granite bouldering on glacial erratics spread out around the general area of Island Lake. Some crowds due to the popularity of the backpacking region however it's easy to find seclusion. Generally exposed and sunny but luckily a lot of the cool problems face north and there is swimming and fishing to pass the time when its too hot to crank. There is plenty of potential in this area guarded by a 2 mile approach. If you put up any problems here please post them up with the accurate locations of each boulder. Alternatively if anyone knows the history of this area please let me know the correct names and grades and I will be happy to correct any errors.
