Description

Two of the largest boulders anywhere... These are the two obvious giant boulders that you first reach from the lower parking area. As big as these blocs are, it's hard to imagine that they were once one.

Grandma features some great steep lines on her beautiful vibrant lichen-colored northwest face, and the amazing 45+ foot highball: the 'Southwest arete' if you want to get high on good terrain.

Grandpa is no joke; he offers some of the proudest and most serious lines in Bishop: 'Evilution', on the beautiful and severely overhanging south face, visible from the road. In January of '09 Kevin Jorgeson put up the boldest highball in the country, the 45+ foot 'Ambrosia' 5.14X, on the gently overhanging and massive east face. Recently Paul Robinson established the insanely difficult 'Lucid Dreaming' v15 to the left of 'Evilution', which features maybe the worst pinch imaginable between giant moves. For the mere mortals, try 'Cave Problem' v4 on the southwest face.

Getting There

There is a parking area on the right just before reaching the boulders.
