Description 

Two of the largest boulders anywhere... These are the two obvious giant boulders that you first reach from the lower parking area. As big as these blocs are, it's hard to imagine that they were once one.

Grandma features some great steep lines on her beautiful vibrant lichen-colored northwest face, and the amazing 45+ foot highball: the 'Southwest arete' if you want to get high on good terrain.

Grandpa is no joke; he offers some of the proudest and most serious lines in Bishop: 'Evilution', on the beautiful and severely overhanging south face, visible from the road. In January of '09 Kevin Jorgeson put up the boldest highball in the country, the 45+ foot 'Ambrosia' 5.14X, on the gently overhanging and massive east face. Recently Paul Robinson established the insanely difficult 'Lucid Dreaming' v16 to the left of 'Evilution', which features maybe the worst pinch imaginable between giant moves. For the mere mortals, try 'Cave Problem' v4 on the southwest face.


Getting There 

There is a parking area on the right just before reaching the boulders.

Evilution V12-13 8B CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Grandpa Peabody Boulder
This landmark problem was first climbed by Jason Kehl, and stands as a North American classic. At 55 feet, it is closer to a route than a boulder problem, and represents a new breed of boulder problems pushing the envelope of highball bouldering. The initial face was first ascended by Chris Sharma around the same time that he did 'The Mandala'. Originally, Chris simply dropped off from the lip holds at 20+ feet (most people down climb a bit before dropping). The initial face features steep p...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
