Description

Casa Diablo Mountain is situated in the middle of the Long Valley Caldera, with spectacular views of the White, Glass, and Sierra Nevada Mountains.
There are only a few routes here, but development is taking place. Half the climbs are north facing and the other half west facing.
This is a great mild weather climbing spot that is lower than the Mammoth area climbs and sits a bit higher than the Owens River Gorge.
There are a fair number of easy and moderate climbs here.

Getting There

From the 395 head east on Benton Crossing Rd. Drive 18 miles and turn right on a dirt road (3S02) (The Mammoth Area Rock Climbs guide says there is a sign, but it is very weathered)

Drive for a few miles (6 or 7ish) on a great dirt road (one of the best I have been on in the Sierras)Keep left at the first T (still 3S02) Continue on 3S02 and at the second T stay right (still 3S02) ^Check out the photos below of these turns ^

You will now be running parallel to Casa Diablo Mountain, Turn left between two trees on 04S134. Continue on a washboarded road and take the left turn onto 04S134F There is a small round parking area.

From the parking you can see a few climbs, these climbs are not in the guide book, the ones in the guide book are on the left side of the rocks.
