Description

A relatively unknown granite boulder field with most of its activity coming from a handful of locals or the occasional climber driving through Ebbets Pass. As of now about 50 problems are mapped, but countless boulders in the area are ripe for first ascent, especially as you travel further from the highway. Often snow on the ground until early summer, but otherwise a pleasant, easily accessible climbing area with rock quality on par with Yosemite and much left to explore.

Getting There

Head north on Highway 4. About 15 minutes before arriving at Bear Valley Village, look for a turnout on the right directly next to a field of granite boulders. In the winter, Ebbets Pass is closed until the snow melts, so you'll have to come from the south.
