Lower Kern River Canyon Rock Climbing
Sunset from 'The Mouth' craig
Everything south of Lake Isabella is considered the "Lower Kern". I decided to split this up so that it is easier to find as well as designate which of the Dozen or so craigs belong here.
Many climbs are right off the 178, some as close as right at the turn out. A few require some hiking, including crossing the river for areas like the gym
-From Fwy 58 either direction, get off at Comanche Dr and drive North approx 4-5 mi and take a right onto the 178.
-From Fwy 99 either direction, take Ca178 E and follow Rosedale Hwy through town. It will turn into a fwy temporarily and when it becomes a regular road again just follow the 178 to the mouth of the canyon
