Heading back down the road from the Looking Wall, ...

Description 

Looking Wall faces West so it is an ideal spot to escape the summer sun before 2pm, or catch the evening sun early or late in the season.

The cliff is composed of fractured granite which offers varied steep climbing, in a very low key atmosphere.

Getting There 

From the 395 turn East at the Green Church (just south of Mammoth Airport) on the Benton Crossing Road. After 6.7 miles (at the Owens River Campground), turn left and drive 2.3 miles along a dirt road. Turn right (immediately) after the second gate and head NE for 2.9 miles. Park up on the left. Cross the cattle grid and turn right along the fence line. The cliff is easily seen across the small stream.

Climbing Season

For the Mammoth Lakes Area area.

Weather station 13.5 miles from here
