Description

The June Lake roadside ice is an easy to get to area ideal for beginners.
The climbs can be lead, but you can top rope them off trees by walking uphill to the right of the climbs.
The climbs face east, so warm weather takes a toll.

There are two No Trespassing signs: one aimed at the cliff, the other aimed at the base area (as of 2016).

Getting There

Drive thru the town of June Lake, past the June Lake ski resort, and just past the Edison power plant you will find a locked gate(winter closure). Park here, and walked up the unplowed road approximately 100 yards.

there are multiple bolted anchors on this cliff and with judicious directionals there is little need to TR off trees Apr 2, 2017

The rock on this cliff is quartzite I believe.

For similar rock nearby without the two No Trespassing signs, try
the Silver Lake crag area
just 0.3 mile further north.
The quartzite there is mostly rather sound and compact, with lots of features for fun rock climbing. Prettier view than the roadside crag.
