Description

Shady and sunny climbs. Can be windy and cold in the fall and spring. Nicely secluded.

Mostly sport ranging from 5.7 to 5.11.
Great place to go. Put it up as an institutional climbing site years ago. Never reported it because I wanted for my groups. Now that I am no longer in Cali. I will let this one out. Have fun.

Getting There

Take the 395 North to the Nine Mile Canyon Rd. Turn left and climb Nine Mile Canyon Rd. Drive about 20 to 25 miles to the Kennedy Meadows store. From the store, go to Fish Campground on your left. However, turn right on a dirt pad for overuse camping. Follow the dirt road until you can go straight or left. Take the left dirt road. Once you make the left, go about 100 yards and park.

Hike to the end of the road where you will see a motorcycle bridge, hike across the bridge. Once across the bridge, make a left and follow Fish Creek up stream until you see the rock.The approach is about 15 min from the car.
