Description

The bottom half of this rock was resurrected in 2011 when Shaver Lake was drained to perform maintenance on its dam. When looking at it, it's clear where the old water level used to be. The lake level hasn't since returned to that high of a mark since it was drained. This conspicuous ≈25 foot tall, granite rock is segmented by an obvious, single, left-leaning crack that looks wide from afar but actually climbs with jams from fingers to hands given the flake inside. The bottom half is clean and white. The top half is home to lichen. The rock is virgin and crisp underfoot. There also may be some potential for short, moderate, top-rope face-climbs. The top takes cams from BD #2 to #4 for an anchor and is easily accessible from the road side to set up a top-rope. The quick and easy access right next to lake might make this a fun place to introduce someone to rock-climbing, take the kids, or get a quick fix if you're traveling Hwy 168 through Shaver Lake. More seasoned climbers may want to test their mettle by considering it a high-ball boulder problem...although I chose to rope up for it given the untraveled rock.

Getting There

From Hwy 168 that skirts the west side of Shaver Lake, head to the north end of the lake where the large Sierra Marina is located. You can easily see this rock from the marina or while on the north end of the lake if you look southwest. Look for the bi-colored rock (dark upper half, light lower half) jutting up right next to the 168. Park on the wide shoulder of the lake side of the road. It's a short walk to the base or top.
