Southern Sierra Rock Climbing
Lots of cool stuff. Photo by Blitzo.
The Sierra Nevada covers a huge geographical area. Dividing this into Southern and Northern regions is an attempt to create a more logical, manageable, and hopefully user-friendly structure. The Sonora Pass Highway (108) area is used as a boundary between Southern and Northern regions. For information about the Eastern Sierra (Bishop, Mammoth, etc), refer to the Sierra Eastside section of the site.
For information about alpine routes including Charlotte Dome, please refer to the High Sierra section of the site.
The National Parks have their own dedicated sections. See Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP and Yosemite National Park.

Featured Route For Southern Sierra
Little Kala 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c CA
: Southern Sierra
: ... : Main Wall - Lower Left
This route follows an obvious shallow dihedral up the middle of the wall. Start with a pull over a roof and a small traverse to get into the diehdral. Stem up, with occasional fingerlocks past bolts. Follow the flaring crack to the left and then up the face past a tricky crux. More face climbing leads to the anchor. Good for breaking into the grade with quality climbing throughout....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
