Description Suggestion
Southeast facing crag that gets morning and midday sunshine, the sun typically ducks behind the cliff in the early afternoon at this amazing crag. This cliff span has something for everyone! Variable beginner routes on the right side of the crag with bolted anchors and natural pro on low angled slab, and as you travel left towards the obvious overhanging section of cliff there are a variety of bolted lines and harder single pitch trad/mixed lines. Stay tuned as this is a developing cliff that is wonderful most of the year, outside the dead of winter. Topping out the cliff offers panoramic views in isolation of June Lake and you're almost always guaranteed to have this place to yourself, depending on the seasons. Beautiful climbs in the best location imaginable!

Please change the name to June Lake Slabs and remove the word "Beginner." This area is seeing more development from area climbers and will host a variety of harder sport climbs. Thank you!

Description Suggestion
June Lake Slabs is a southeast facing crag that gets morning and midday sunshine. The sun typically ducks behind the cliff in the early afternoon, and this cliff-span has something for everyone!

There are variable beginner routes on the right side of the crag with bolted anchors and natural pro on low angled slab. As you travel leftwards, towards the obvious overhanging section of cliff, you'll find a variety of bolted lines and harder single pitch trad/mixed lines as well.

Stay tuned as this is a developing cliff that is wonderful most of the year, (aside from the dead of winter).

Topping out the cliff offers panoramic views of June Lake and the surrounding mountain ranges, and you're almost always guaranteed to have this place to yourself depending on the time of year. Beautiful climbs in the best location imaginable!

Getting There Suggestion
If coming from out of town (395), take a right on North Shore Drive before getting to downtown June Lake. The Crag is the only granite crag on the side of the road about 5 mins after making the right turn on North Shore.

If coming from out of town, the crag will be on the left about 7 mins after turning right on North Shore from that direction.
