Josh heading up Larry Land .11c. Bowman Valley, CA...
Larry Land is a series of routes beneath the south dam of the Bowman Lake. It is located directly below the dam, with climbs within feet of the dam itself. As you approach the dam, it is the left wall.
There are about 30 bolted climbs ranging from 5.10-5.13a. Athletic climbing on good edges.
Appox 13.5 miles off Hwy 20 down Bowman Lakes road. Park at the bridge beneath the south dam of Bowman Lake. Once parked , hike the dirt road on the south side of the river towards the cement damn, crossing the gorge on the poured cement slab to the left side of the gorge. Approach takes about 10 minutes. The climbs are all just beneath the dam.

Superb rock, easy access, fun sport climbing. Mostly 5.11. Shade till noon then sun remainder of day. Good afternoon shade at B-Word Wall. About 15 bolts lines at Larry Land ranging form .10a - 13a.
Park at bridge exactly 13.5 miles off Hwy 20 on the Bowman Rd. Walk up right side of washed out stream bed (8 mins.) to cement dam (Bowman Lake). Larry Land is obvious bolted cliff that comes off let side of dam. Good swimming at Lake.
