Description Suggest change

The volcanic tuff cliff faces South West and has a good collection of moderate sport routes. The climbing is similar to Clarks Canyon, perhaps not quite as steep.

The cliff is split into two main sections, left and right of a tower in the middle of the cliff.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive North from Mammoth Lakes on the 395 for 7.5 miles. Shortly after a rest area turn right onto Owens River Road, follow this for 2 miles until you can turn Left into Big Springs Campground.

Follow this for 2.2 miles, until you can turn right onto 2S06. Follow this road 1.5 miles, to where the 1S47 joins from the left, continue on for another 1/2 mile (the road is rough here), until a small meadow is reached. Turn Left here, and follow the road to its end (1/2 mile).

The cliff is up the hillside on the right.
