Situated in a dense pine forest at elevations of 6500' to over 7500' the Keller Peak area offers great climbing on over 200 routes and much bouldering for most of the year. There are many locations for climbing along the road as well as eleven free campsites. No services are available along Keller Peak Road, but the towns of Running Springs and Arrowbear are only fifteen minutes away with full ameneties. The fire lookout atop Keller Peak (7882') provides an amazing bird-eye view; when open and visibility is high a visit to it is highly recommended.
From the town of Running Springs head east approximately 1.0 mile on Hwy 18 and make a right (just past the Deerlick Fire Station) onto Keller Peak Road (1N96), a paved but narrow and winding two-lane road. Following the road uphill will take one to the various areas; about 4 miles up the road tees- left to Children's Forest and right to the Keller Peak Lookout.

Preclip the high first bolt and then move somewhat left of it to get started. At the horizontal traverse right to a second bolt and the crux moves over a bulge to reach a sloping horizontal. Continue up the bulging face passing numerous horizontals to a final tricky crux passing the last bolt. This route is an excellent introduction to the climbing at the Hungover Wall and serves as a good warm-up for the harder lines on the wall. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
