Description

Southeast facing crag that gets morning and midday sunshine, the sun typically ducks behind the cliff in the early afternoon at this amazing crag. This cliff span has something for everyone!

Variable beginner routes on the right side of the crag with bolted anchors and natural pro on low angled slab, and as you travel left towards the obvious overhanging section of cliff there are a variety of bolted lines and harder single pitch trad/mixed lines.

This cliff is wonderful most of the year, outside the dead of winter. Topping out the cliff offers panoramic views (in isolation) of June Lake and you're almost always guaranteed to have this place to yourself, depending on the seasons.

Getting There

If coming from out of town (395), take a right on North Shore Drive before getting to downtown June Lake. The Crag is the only granite crag on the side of the road about 5 mins after making the right turn on North Shore.

If coming from out of town, the crag will be on the left about 7 mins after turning right on North Shore from that direction.
