Situated in a dense pine forest at elevations of 6500' to over 7500' the Keller Peak area offers great climbing on over 200 routes and much bouldering for most of the year. There are many locations for climbing along the road as well as nine free campsites. No services are available along Keller Peak Road, but the towns of Running Springs and Arrowbear are only fifteen minutes away with full ameneties.
The fire lookout atop Keller Peak (7882') provides an amazing bird-eye view; when open and visibility is high a visit to it is highly recommended.
- The road up Keller Peak is a narrow two lane road with many blind corners as it winds it's way up the mountainside. Please drive slowly and cautiously and keep an eye out for other vehicles as well as pedestrian traffic.
- Parking is fairly limited at most crags, especially the Hungover Wall, so please pull completely off the road when parking so as not to make it any more narrow than it already is.
From the town of Running Springs head east approximately 1.0 mile on Hwy 18 and make a right, just past the Deerlick Fire Station, onto Keller Peak Road (1N96), a paved but narrow and winding two-lane road.
- The various crags of Keller Peak have been placed in the order they are encountered driving up the Keller Peak Road from the bottom.
