Horseshoe lake is the last lake you reach as you drive up into the lakes basin from Mammoth Lakes. The bouldering is located on a number of standalone boulders and small cliffs scattered around the lake.

The majority of the problems are located in the South West section of the lake.

The granite boulders are smooth in nature, and large in size. Close your eyes and you can imagine sitting in Yosemite Valley, only quieter.

Getting There 

Continue up the main street of Mammoth lakes. At the traffic signals at the top of main continue straight on up to the lakes basin. Continue you on up to the large parking area at Horseshoe Lakes.

Park up and explore.
