Description

This area is not separated out by Marty Lewis's guide, but it makes sense to me, since these routes are primarily bolted. Not all routes are depicted in the Mammoth Area Rock Climbs guidebook, so I wanted to make a separate area for these routes.

This is a good area for ending the day to get a good pump if you haven't yet had enough are are getting cold in the shade. The wall stays in the sun a little longer than the main cliff face.

Important note: This cliff is located in the John Muir Wilderness, no motorized equipment is allowed. That includes power drills!

Getting There

This is the first climbable rock face one encounters on the approach to the Patricia Bowl crags. It would be the farthest left area when looking up at the cliff from below.
