High quality granite boulders along Lewis Creek located 10 minutes outside of Oakhurst. If you don't have time to make it to The Valley consider a quick trip up to Lewis Creek.

Getting There 

From the junction of Hwy 41 and 49 in Oakhurst drive about 7.3 miles NE on 41 towards Yosemite to the large Lewis Creek trailhead pullout on the right. From the parking area hike down the hill towards the river until you hit the main trail. You'll find high quality granite boulders along the river and trail both up and downstream from the parking area.

With no face or footholds this will require your best groveling technique. Can be safely lead with wide gear or bouldered although the crux comes high at the angle switch where the crack widens and the angles kicks back to less than vertical. Not sure of the grade but I'd compare it to some of the Vedauwoo 11b's I've tried.Two achor bolts have been added on top and can be easily accessed by walking around to the top of the boulder. Has also been bouldered....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
