Remote area in the Dinkey Lakes Wilderness. Visible from courtright lake behind Trapper Dome. Holds at least one recorded route to the summit via the east face. (5.8 i think) and at a few recorded routes on the summit blocks. TONS of potential. The walls closest to Bullfrog lake look very featured and 1-3 pitches in length. (southwest side). The summit blocks hold dozens of short highly featured routes. From easy chimneys to overhanging climbs up huecos finishing with wild roofs.

Getting There 

Though most commonly approached from Courtright, Rock Creek road offers a more gradual hike past more lakes and is in my opinion the only way to hike into Dinkey Lakes. The 3 sisters have some steep faces on them, as well as cliff lake if approaching from courtright. There are established routes on Cliff lake Wall.

Hey Dave, no I do not. I was hoping the new courtright guide would have a bit...I've heard of some old aid lines on the right side but that's the extent of it. If you ever want to blast up there I'd tie in with you!
