Location: CA : Sierra Eastside : Mammoth Lakes Area : Horseshoe Lake Area : Horseshoe Slabs

Comments: Approach:
About 0.5 mile / 0.9km gentle walk from Parking (GPS lat long ~ N37.6129 W119.0208) by the N end of Horseshoe Lake.
Toilets at parking, but we did not see any bear-proof food storage containers (as of 2014).

Directions: From the Parking, start south on a wide straight dirt mountain-bike trail following about 50 yards/meters from the west shore of Horseshoe Lake. After about 0.25 mile / 400m cross the first bridge. Trail gets narrower and curvier. After another 0.25 mile / 400m, the 5t... more >>


Location: CA : Sierra Eastside : Mammoth Lakes Area : Dike Wall : East Face : Cromagnon (5.10a)

Comments: After the initial overhang, it's dead vertical to the top. Remarkable that no single move is harder than 10a.
But it keeps coming at you.
Would be even better if it required more variety of techniques.

Comments: Sustained difficulty. Variety of techniques. If only it were longer.

Comments: Crux section is way harder (full value 10b) than the rest -- but the rest is interesting enough.

Comments: Top-Roping access ...
The short access to the top of the cliffs is by two climbs rated 5.6 and 5.7 in the most recent print guidebook. There might or might not be an easier access far up toward the West which would go well above the top of the wall, and then you'd have to find your way back down and hope you could reach the top anchors for your desired climbing routes.

So if you're not feeling brave to solo 5.6 or 5.7 as your first climbing of the day, bring a selection of smal... more >>

Comments: The Dike Wall is located around GPS latitude longitude (N37.5962 W119.0133), about 0.2 mile / 350 meters SW from the S shore of Lake George, or about 4 miles / 6 km SW from the town of Mammoth Lakes.

Parking (lat long ~ N37.6034 W119.0107) is on the N side of Lake George. There are toilets and bear-proof food storage facilities.

Approach: The shorter approach hike is around the East side of Lake George -- about +350 vertical feet / +105 meters over a distance of 0.7 mile / 1.1 km, mostl... more >>
