Description

East face of southern part of Wheeler Crest. Gets sun until three o'clock. Granite, quite solid on the more traveled routes.

Getting There

From Bishop, drive north on the 395 for about 10 miles and turn left on Pine Creek Road. Turn right on Round Valley Road until you reach the second crossroads. Turn left (to the south) on a dirt road until you get to a fork, keep to the right (4WD road) and follow the road for two miles. While approaching you'll see the obvious 'rabbit ear' like structure right at the end of the approach gully. Just walk to the gully and head straight up through it (1,5 hours approach).
