"Halloween Party" a classic 5.10 on the ...
Sunny and South facing. If the wind is blowing you can climb there in late June as we did. This wall was originally aid climbed by E.C. Joe. Herb Laeger has really developed it with a number of folks over the last ten years or so. Great rock and no lines. We did four routes and all of them were great except the last one which I think was called Sore Bolters. It was hardly worth doing but we needed a climb in the shade.
Drive to Lake Isabella just below Kernville then head to Bodfish. Follow the main road through Bodfish where it will quickly snake up the mountain. At the saddle a dirt road heads off to the left. Take this road 5.3 miles up the mountain. When the road hits the ridge park in the little area to the right. The trail is about 30 feet past this parking spot and drops down to the left. Do not go up on the ridge. Contour below the ridge to the saddle. As the trail begins to drop into the saddle look for a fainter trail to the left. It leads to the main wall. If you start hiking up out of the saddle you have missed the trail to the main wall.

Pitch One: 140 ft. Easy climbing to a bolt 25 feet up and just left of a small arete, then follow the bolts through weakness in roof to the anchors. Pitch Two: Climb right and up off the belay. The second pitch is in your face from the time you leave the belay and it doesn't let up for a long time. Each time you figure out a move and reach the next bolt there is another puzzle to work out. Probably one of the finest face pitches I have climbed in the last thirty years. The bolts will eventu...[more] Browse More Classics in California

Caution I went in March and the access road that you take 'to the left just past the saddle' seems to be closed seasonally
