Description 

June Lake has very good bouldering areas, with some of them matching the quality of the better known areas, such as the Happy and Sad areas, the Sherwin Plateau, or the Buttermilks, located a few miles south closer to the town of Bishop.

If you like solitude and great bouldering head this way, as many times you'll have the areas to yourself.

The rock type is many volcanic tuff, but you'll also be able to find some Granite closer to town.

Getting There 

June Lake is situated a few miles west (on the 158) from the 395, about 50 miles north of Bishop.

Deadman's Corner 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  California : Sierra Eastside : ... : Center Block
The route climbs the obvious corner on the right side of the main tower. A thin finger crack up a steep corner eases off in difficulty after 20' or so.Since it is a crack and climbs like one, I let it keep the 10c rating, but for the boulderers out there it goes at V1....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
