Hodgepodge Rock north-side in spring morning light...


The north face of Hodgepodge Rock is a good choice for toproping with groups and escaping the often blistering heat that gives Indian Cove the nickname "Indian Stove".

Getting There 

From the main entrance road to Indian Cove, turn right along the Group Camp Road. Hodgepodge lies between Group Sites 4 and 5, 30' south of the road. The north-facing wall is heavily pock-marked.

  • Day-use parking is available near site #5.

Climbing Season

For the Group Campsite 8 area.

this is a face route that is OK and as with the others on this formation not that spectacular. But worthwhile if in the area or just wanting to do a shorter face route for some reason. There are a few easy to moderates on this rock and one can bang them off in a heartbeat if "ticking" off routes...I would not go out of my way however.......[more]   Browse More Classics in California
