The Bubbs Creek wall is an astounding piece of backcountry granite that rises sharply from the Bubbs Creek Drainage. In late May the wall goes into the sun around 10:30 and is in the sun for the rest of the day.

Getting There 

Approach as per Charlotte Dome. Hike east from Road's End (where you get a camping permit) for 7.4 miles on a nice trail to a great camping spot just past Charlotte Creek. From here hike 20 minutes further down the trail until you can see the beautiful wall on the left.

Climbing Season

For the 10 - Kearsarge Pass to Cedar Grove area.

Weather station 14.6 miles from here

What's Up Bubb now goes free with a few variations to the original aid line. We have been thinking of calling the free route "The Sensei". Huge thanks to Aaron Cassebeer and Ben Steel who were part of our first push to the top after fixing ropes. Casey and I completed a one day redpoint of the route a month later. This route has outstanding rock, tricky sequences and a lot of variety. All of the cruxes are face climbing or laybacking with a good amount of thin slab trickery on the low pitches.P1...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
