Description 

Climbing areas near the main parking lot at Hospital Rock, including the Lunchboxes.

Getting There 

From Visalia/Three Rivers, take the 198 up through the park entrance. Only a short distance (~5 miles) from there to the Hospital Rock parking lot. Look for the sign, hard to miss.

There is a decent climber's trail breaking off of the Middle Fork Trail (north-west of the parking lot). Hug the base of the cliff to avoid various trails to nowhere.

The Bobino Direct 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  California : Sequoia & Kings Canyon NP : ... : Parking Lot Area
Top rope or run out the first half. Climb a relatively straight line on the cleanest part of the wall, to the right of the Big Bobino. Lots of variations, from easy 5th all the way up to 10+ with enough creativity. Great wall for playing eliminations/add-on, or doing laps. Keeping to micro crimps makes for some fun/tricky slab problems....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
