Description

Amazing granite climbing and bouldering in a beautiful Sierra setting. The area has 400 boulder problems and several cliff faces, many that are virtually roadside that have great potential for trad climbing. Come here to escape the lines at nearby Lover's Leap and Sugarloaf.

Also some excellent quality welded tuff that is roadside. Some good boulder problems have been established here but there is potential to bolt some excellent looking overhanging sport climbing routes also.

Semi-complete topo guides can be found online at Wikiboulder and 27crags. The Supertopo guide covers about 1/4 of the bouldering found here.

Getting There

45 min drive from highway 50 on Icehouse Road. Follow signs to Loon Lake.
