Some of the best hard crack climbing close to Bishop. The rock is similar to the Buttermilk's, but just bigger formations with some killer splitters. Bring your tape for these crags. The elevation is such that it can be climbed year round. Usually dont see the crowds at this area.
Take the 168 from Bishop and continue past the Buttermilk Road turnoff for approximately 3 miles. The crags will come into view up on the hillside to your left while driving. Take a left at Plant 3 Rd. which heads down towards the power station and reservoir. Park out of the way under the tree or next to the small pump shack. Walk down past the closed gate, down the old crumbly road to the steep trail that leads down to the bridge that crosses the creek. The footbridge is visible from the old road. Follow the trail up the hillside to the fork, turn left, and follow the trail to the top where the crags will appear when you reach the crest of the ridge.

The steep trail down to the bridge may not be obvious (or, more likely, I'm just retarded). Where you see the large water pipe sprout a little pump shack about a 100 yards or so from the gate on the old road, you head down.
