Description

This area offers a fine selection of isolated bouldering venues and a small but beautiful sport climbing spot overlooking the gorge. All the areas consist of pocketed volcanic tuff, which offers good steep climbing on generally good quality rock.

The boulder problems are very similar to those found at The Happy Boulders, however, more often than not, you'll have the place to yourself.

Getting There

The area is generally accessed from Tom's Place, which lies about 30 minutes North of Bishop, or 20 minutes South of Mammoth Lakes on the 395.
