While not much of a destination in itself, for those staying at the Potwisha campgrounds, there are some mildly interesting slab/crack climbs a short stroll away.
Worth hitting up for some V-basic cool downs and a picnic after Moro.
A group of 4-5 people with 4-5 pads would have themselves a real nice hootenanny.

Across the road from the Potwisha campgrounds (south) is a trail. Follow the trail until you come to a walking bridge. Just across the bridge and a sharp right along the river is a small cluster of boulders at a beach.
Huge rattlesnake at the base last time we visited!

A bit of exploring further north and south of the campground along the trails can yield some pretty epic results.

Getting There 

From Visalia/Three Rivers, take highway 198 through the entrance. A few miles past the entrance is the Potwisha campground. Either camp, or park across the road from the campgrounds.
Main boulders are south along the river, a couple hundred meters down the trail and across the bridge.

A quality boulder program, for Southern Sequoia. On the obvious overhanging boulder across the bridge and upstream from the other problems mentioned here. SC is spray painted on the boulder.Start low and left with a left hand on a small peanut bulge on the lip and the right on the obvious rail. Ride the lip to the obvious jug and throw for the top.No idea about the grade......[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
