V5, Boulder, 12 ft,  Avg: 2.7 from 68 votes

California > Sierra Eastside > Bishop Area > Volcanic Tablel… > Sad Boulders > Ice Caves
Access Issue: Read the BLM Sad Boulders page before you visit. Details


Start on a right-hand knob about 7-ft off the ground. A small foot about waist-high gets you off the ground as you throw for the left-hand crimp on the arete. Bump up to the sloper for your left, and the horizontal slot for your right. The top is juggy but requires some care.


As you enter the Ice Caves, there are 4 prominent aretes at the entrance: Rorschach Test on the SW, Fueled By Hate on the NE, Shaft on SE, and Chizam on the NW.

[Hide Comment] Fun moves on slopers which thankfully are generally cool and grippy. Apr 2, 2010

[Hide Comment] Agree with Jonah above on the spelling.

A bit of a one move wonder, but fun nonetheless. Mar 31, 2014
[Hide Comment] Repeated this in the 96 degree heat the other day. It was notably harder in that temp. May 28, 2014
