02 - The Sawtooth Ridge Rock Climbing
The top 2/3 of Incredible Hulk, as seen near the e...
The Sawtooth Ridge area is the northern limit of the true High Sierra (it's in the Hoover Wilderness
, which has been separated in MP for convenience). Nationally renowned for high country rock climbs being developed on Incredible Hulk
, which appear in most recent years' American Alpine Journals, within sight of the popular hiking and climbing destination of Matterhorn Peak
. Wild mountain play of all difficulties between may be had here.
Many start their treks from Horse Creek, or two other nearby trailheads , making Annett's Mono Village a popular, but not free, base of operations (see their wesbite
for the latest details; it recently costed $10 to park at the marina there).
The Hoover Wilderness lies on the east slopes of Sawtooth Ridge, so overnight stays starting here require permits; see the website
for information, or to reserve one in advance. Yosemite National Parks begins on the west slopes. Day trips into the protected areas from here are free. Further reading: A Climbers Guide to the High Sierra (1954)
From the town of Bridgeport on highway 395, turn south onto Twin Lakes Road, which winds south and west into the Sierra Nevada. This ends at Anett's Mono Village Resort. From here, the exact trail to take depends on your destination.

A good, clean alpine route. Classic.This route was really fun. Part of the allure for me and my partner was that there wasn't any good beta available. We just heard that it was wide and sustained. Because we didn't know any real beta we had to make our own rack decisions, figure out how to use/conserve gear, decide which crack to take on the headwall, and figure out how to break up pitches. My recommendation is to go climb the route without reading the beta below. It will be memorable.P1. ...[more] Browse More Classics in California
