Description 

This area offers a fine selection of isolated bouldering venues. All the areas consist of pocketed volcanic tuff, which offers good steep bouldering on generally good quality rock.

The problems are very similar to those found at The Happy Boulders, however, more often than not, you'll have the place to yourself.

Getting There 

The area is generally accessed from Tom's Place, which lies about 30 minutes North of Bishop, or 20 minutes South of Mammoth Lakes on the 395.

Possibly the best problem of its grade in Bishop. Certainly, it is the best V3 arete in Bishop. It climbs like a gritstone arete. Amazing location to boot. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
