A mid-elevation cliff newly-publicized is

  • remarkably big: 1000 ft wide, 350 ft tall.
  • rather fun featured granite, with positive holds and three-dimensional structures.
  • rather close to a good asphalt road (June Lake Loop) with mostly nicely maintained non-steep approach trails.
  • top of first pitches mostly accessable and with natural anchors for top-roping or for bolting on rappel.

details + lots of photos + cliff access map here:
http://www.mountainproject.com/v/rush/112059043

So far ...
  • 8 bolted sport routes.
  • 6 Trad routes with two-bolt top anchors.
. . (though three of the routes sort of share one anchor)
  • 7 Top-Rope or Trad routes with no fixed hardware.

What's missing on MountainProject:
  • suggestions for missing info, and corrections of mistakes.
  • difficulty ratings for lots of those routes -- so check the photo for any of the sectors you might know, and please let me know by MP private message the difficulty (and protection?), or post a Comment on the area sector page.
Or especially if you know the First Ascent history, just add the route to the appropriate Area sector yourself.
--> This sector 3 Photo displays six out of the ten unknown-difficulty routes.

  • info about multi-pitch routes.

What's missing out on the crag:
  • Put up more new routes (Sport or Trad or TR) for the community to enjoy. Lots of open space to be filled.
  • Careful management of loose rocks on these fresh new routes.
  • Improve hiking access along the base of the cliff between sectors.
