Meadow Area Rock Climbing
The Meadow Area is a best concentration of hard bouldering at Way Lake. Home to the one of the hardest problems and several of the most classic problems at Way Lake. This area is a cool hang with some shade from big lodgepole pines, though it isn't exactly a meadow.
The easiest access route is NOT what is listed in the guidebook. I will try to describe. From Emerald Lake trailhead, follow the trail up about 1/4 mile until a social trail leads down right to the bank of the creek. Follow this to a log crossing of the creek. On the other side of the creek, a social trail leads uphill. Follow this until it hits an old mining road on which you take a left. Follow the old mining road up to the west. It crosses an established trail, just stay on the old road. The road leads you steeply uphill. Continue on the road until it levels out at a big clearing. Straight ahead is Way Lake. Bear left on a faint trail that will lead you a few hundred yards to the Meadows Area. Look for the obvious classic looking roof.

It doesn't add much in my opinion.You either have to be tall or stack pads in order to start sitting, but sit start if you can with a right hand in a good crack / side pull and a left hand on a small sidepull, then pull into the crimp rail and climb Meadow Face....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
