Enjoying the moves on The Arete, V3


Sherwin Summit boulders are scattered on the hillside to the north east of Highway 395's Sherwin Summit. The bouldering is limited given the amount of rock but it is a cool place to wander around. The rock on the boulders is a little crunchy, so take care on the higher problems, but the views are amazing.

The bouldering is moderate, generally over flat landings.

Getting There 

Head south from Mammoth Lakes or North from Bishop on the US hwy 395. Take the dirt road (4S43) north at the summit, and follow it for about 200 yards to a small turn out on the right.

Take care not to cross the central reservation here, but continue south for about a mile before looping back north on the 395.
