Mammoth Rock is a large limestone/marble formation visible from nearly anywhere in the town of Mammoth Lakes. The rock by in large is heavily fractured and chossy. There are a couple Class 2-3 routes up the southern side from the saddle separating the rock from the Sherwins.

Getting There 

From the town of Mammoth Lakes, follow Old Mammoth Road to the Mammoth Rock Trailhead. From there, many unmaintained trails lead up to the rock. Pick one and head up. Plan for 20-40 minutes to get to the rock, depending on snow conditions (if present) and acclimation.
