Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionBishop Tuff boulders like the Happy Boulders, but can be cooler in spots due to the narrow, catacomb-like channels and caves. The area has a dense collection of problems, but caters more to climbers in the V6 - V10 range than the neighboring Happy Boulders, though some easier classics, such as China Doll (V0) and 'Still Life' (V3) do exist.

Getting ThereFrom Bishop take road 6 North. Left on Five Bridges Road. Left again on Chalk Bluff Road. Park in pullout on your left after about a mile. The Sads can also be approached from Casa Diablo Road, but the parking lot at the top of the canyon is small and parking off road is highly discouraged by the BLM.
