Description 

The largest unbroken formation in the Alabama Hills. Home to long, clean face routes on outstanding rock.


Getting There 

From the Meatloaf Campsite, walk directly toward truffle Tower. From the base of Truffle tower turn right and scramble up a corridor between Truffle Tower and a large boulder. After about 60 feet of scrambling, drop down and right through a cave/corridor. You will emerge from the far end at the base of The Loaf.

Pangborn 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : The Loaf
Excellent face climbing with a distinct crux at the 6th bolt. This route is not as sustained as Ranger Ron. The crux is very well protected, but there are sometimes 5.6 moves 10 feet above the last bolt....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
