Description

The crags found in this area offer a selection of sport and trad climbing in a remote setting. Some of the climbing is similar to Joshua tree in style and rock.

The scenery is idyllic and you can't help feeling away from it all when you climb here.

Getting There

This area is East of the Mammoth Lakes Area, and can reached by either the Benton Crossing road which is accessed 5.5 miles south of Mammoth Lakes on the 395, or by heading East from the 395 on the 120.
