Description

Nestled at an elevation of 10,350', the Lower Boy Scout Lake Boulders are strewn amidst talus and pines. With snow to serve as a natural crash pad in the spring, there are many enjoyable ascents in the area, all framed by a panorama of jagged peaks and rushing water, giving you a well-cooked taste of granite close to a comfortable basecamp (and away from the desert heat).

I'm sure these boulders have been climbed before, but the names of routes have rushed down the oral abyss of human forgetting--if anyone has any knowledge of the history of bouldering in this area, it would be greatly appreciated.

Getting There

Lower Boy Scout Lake is located on the Mountaineers Route about a mile up the North Fork of Lone Pine Creek from the main Mt. Whitney Trail. At an elevation of 10,350', this is a popular campsite to ease the approach to Iceberg Lake or in which to savor an extra night on the descent. There is plenty of water, forgiving temperatures, and shade.
