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.
