Description 

This area offers a fine selection of isolated bouldering venues. All the areas consist of pocketed volcanic tuff, which offers good steep bouldering on generally good quality rock.

The problems are very similar to those found at The Happy Boulders, however, more often than not, you'll have the place to yourself.

Getting There 

The area is generally accessed from Tom's Place, which lies about 30 minutes North of Bishop, or 20 minutes South of Mammoth Lakes on the 395.

An excellent highball with a low crux and a juggy top-out. It gets easier the higher you go..Climb the delicate opening moves with small but good holds/pockets (crux) to the deep pocket-jug at about the mid-point. Move up on good pockets to a huge jug on a flake, then up and right on a rail to make the last move out and right to the blind-ish jug....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
