Description

Near Courtright Reservoir, but 1700 feet lower elevation and open earlier in the season. Numerous crags are scattered around the lake. Hoffman Mountain and Finger Rock are also approached from the trailhead at Wishon. All of the aforementioned crags are in the 2017 Courtright Reservoir & Vicinity guidebook by Dwight Kroll, K. Daniels publishing--an excellent book--buy it if you're going to climb in this region.

Getting There

From Fresno/Clovis, take 168 East until entering the town of Shaver Lake; take a right (east) on Dinkey Creek Road, following it for 11 miles, then right on McKinley Grove Road for another 11 miles to where the road to Courtright goes left, while continuing straight for a couple miles takes you to Wishon Reservoir.
