Hey Y'all! my wife and I were camping out at Wet Meadows Reservoir (near Sunset Lakes, just east of the blue lakes area) and found some bolts!!! Here is the gps: 38.606677, -119.869613
I got really excited, since I "randomly" brought our gear ;) .

After I scrambled to the top, I noticed one of the two anchors was a bit rusted and a little loose. I backed up the loose anchor and added a third point. Rep'd down and started to inspect the route. last bolt was about 1/2" out and swiveling. I was planning on leading it but top roped it since I didn't feel too confident in all the bolts. felt like a 9+/10a'ish and a hell of a lot of fun!!! ended up setting up top rope on some other lines on the same wall. 

I was wondering if anyone knows of this areas development or has beta for any of the many possible routes in that general vicinity. I would love to explore a bit more out there as it being so close to home.
