Description Suggest change

With all the rock around there is little surprise that Rock Creek hosts some fine boulders.

Few easy recorded problems exist on the recognized boulders, so this is no area for beginners.

Getting There Suggest change

From Bishop head North on the 395, from Mammoth head South. When you get to Toms Place turn West and follow the road into Rock Creek.

The bouldering is mostly situated around the Big Meadow Campground which is reached after 4.5 miles.
