Parcher's Bluff Upper Overview


Sport/mixed Granite climbing in a Northwest facing aspect. Generally short but engaging climbing with good gear & bolts on occasion.

Just a few new routes - mostly moderate, but a nice escape during the summer heat.

Afternoon sun.

Getting There 

From the 395/Line Street junction, continue west on East Line Street, and continue as it turns into Highway 168. From the junction to the South Lake road is 15 miles.
Turn South on South Lake Road, and continue 5.7 miles to Parcher's Resort. Check for traffic and pull a U-turn. Go back downhill about 100 yards to a small gravel turn-out across from the Resort. Park and hike downhill until you see a large fallen log in the creek. Cross the log, and follow the old road North.

About 400 yards down, just where the pavement ends and turns to dirt, look for a break in the dirt hill-side. Scramble up and follow a faint trail up & right to the base of the climbs.

There are a few top-rope/lead? routes on the left side - sourced here:

Look for an obvious low-angle arete with a gully to the right. This is Parcher's Prow - the left-most of the new climbs.
