Description 

A stepped and broken granite cliff-band. This area has a growing number of winter rock climbs. Routes here are being established in "dry-tool" style, but local ethics seem to allow for whatever style you choose. Climbs in this area are generally short (less than 30m) and lower angle than your typical magazine-photo "M" climbing experience. With crowded ice up-canyon, development in this area will give steel-clad climbers more options. Not to mention the value of a well-rounded alpine charger being comfortable scratching around on granite. Check it out!

Route ratings as suggested here are very tentative. I mean, what do us Cali climbers know about dry-tooling? Someone who knows something might tell us we're all wrong. Same with star assignments.

Development so far should be credited to Ian M, Thomas G, Luke L. and Jed P.


Getting There 

Follow the ice climbing approach from Poole Power Plant towards Chouinard Falls etc. These dry-tooling crags form the right wall of "the narrows", about half-way to the ice.

Jango Fett M8 PG13  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Dark-Colored Cliffs
This route climbs the right side of the narrowest part of Lee Vining Canyon as you hike up to the classic ice climbs. The route starts in a shallow dihedral on the left side of the face and pulls through a 4 foot roof to join a crack system. From the ground you can easily see a line of four bolts which protect the crux roof and initial crack. The route follows the bolts to the right and switches to a more substantial crack which takes gear for the rest of the route. The first bolt is clipped bl...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
