The road to the Rock Creek boulders in October

Description 

With all the rock around there is little surprise that Rock Creek hosts some fine boulders.

Few easy recorded problems exist on the recognized boulders, so this is no area for beginners.


Getting There 

From Bishop head North on the 395, from Mammoth head South. When you get to Toms Place turn West and follow the road into Rock Creek.

The bouldering is mostly situated around the Big Meadow Campground which is reached after 4.5 miles.

Ken sending Groove and Arete on a crisp fall day

Groove and Arete V4 6B  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : The Boy Named Sue Boulder
Sit start with left hand pinching the arete, and the right on a good small flake. Make a stiff pull to reach a sharp pinch for the right hand, then move up higher on the arete with your left.Continue moving up the arete with your left until the crux pull gains a good hold for the right up high.From here seek out the small but positive holds up high and complete this excellent problem.The problem is also good from the standing start, but for the full tick you need to start from sitting....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

A friend and I lost a dog up in the Hilton/Davis Lakes area on July 16th. If anyone notices any sign of a lost, 90lb, black/brindle (white chest) hound dog roaming around in the woods, please call David at 305-333-8681. Any sign of him, however uncertain, will be much appreciated. Thanks everyone!
