Description 

With all the rock around there is little surprise that Rock Creek hosts some fine boulders.

Few easy recorded problems exist on the recognized boulders, so this is no area for beginners.

Getting There 

From Bishop head North on the 395, from Mammoth head South. When you get to Toms Place turn West and follow the road into Rock Creek.

The bouldering is mostly situated around the Big Meadow Campground which is reached after 4.5 miles.

Clearcut V7 7A+  California : Sierra Eastside : ... : Clearcut Boulder
Sit start below the obvious overhanging arete, right hand on a big flat sidepull and left wherever. Pull up to the seam that winds around the arete, and climb it using layaways, gastons, and poor feet; eventually reaching the very sharp fingerlock and then jugs. Be careful not to get your fingers stuck in the lock....[more]   Browse More Classics in California

A friend and I lost a dog up in the Hilton/Davis Lakes area on July 16th. If anyone notices any sign of a lost, 90lb, black/brindle (white chest) hound dog roaming around in the woods, please call David at 305-333-8681. Any sign of him, however uncertain, will be much appreciated. Thanks everyone!
