Description

Lone Pine plays host to some fine micro routes, as well as some longer routes up in the Mt Whitney area of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

In the cooler months the Alabama Hills area offers good sport and trad routes. While in the hotter months the Whitney Portal area provides a cooler alternative.

Hey rock climbers, I have what I think might be some really big rocks on my property or accessible from my property just outside Lone Pine. I would love some climbers to check out the area and set some climbing routes. You can ghet by contact information at either Big Willies Mountaineering Co. or Elevation in downtown Lone Pine. I posted some pics of the area on the PCT class of 2018 on Facebook. Nov 6, 2018
