Description [Suggest Change]
Trad and Sport climbing on grainy granitic rock somewhat reminiscent of Joshua Tree. Mostly west- and south-facing easy and moderate routes. Remote with beautiful views of the high Sierra. Primitive camping with no water.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Five and a half miles south of the Mammoth Lakes turnoff on Route 395, turn east on the Benton Crossing Road. Drive about 20 miles, then turn sharply right onto Road 3S50. Watch for a fainter road on the left, turn on this and follow it up to near the base of the crags which are clearly visible.
