The June Lake Area has mainly bouldering, although there is limited sport and gear routes around. The main season for climbing is late spring through November, when the first snows of winter start to cover the approach roads to many of the areas.

All year climbing is possible at some venues, although during the winter months it is very much dependent on the weather.

The majority of the climbs are on volcanic tuff. The two outstanding areas about are the Bachar Boulders, and the Deadman Summit bouldering.

Getting There 

June Lake is located West of the 395. From the Mammoth 395 junction head North for 20 minutes to reach the June Lakes turn.

The seam starts with two small sidepulls, which are used to gain a small sharp finger pocket. Sort your feet and make tracks for a good pocket higher on the seam. What remains isn't as hard as what went before, but you'll need a cool head to complete the tick. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
