Description 

A mile or so before you get to Boulder Basin Campground, there is a switchback in the road, with a large turnout and many many boulders sitting on either side of the road. The boulders within a stone's throw from the road is OK Corral Right.

OK Corral Left is hidden from the view of all drivers. Unlike OK Corral right where the problems tend to be almost arms reach from each other, the problems here are scattered amongst the pine trees.

Oddly enough, despite the pine trees, shady problems are hard to come by so on hot days, this place can be broiling, especially since many problems are south facing.

Getting There 

Roughly 5 miles from Highway 243 on Black Mountain Road and 1 mile before arriving at Boulder Basin Campground is OK Corral Right. Park in the turnout at the apex of the switchback.

Once parked, walk roughly SW from the apex of the switchback (so away from the road) towards the clearing. From here, the boulders are scattered, with the majority of them being south or southwest of the clearing. Needless to say, a guide, guidebook or topo will be helpful finding established problems.

Featured Route For OK Corral Lower
One of the best.  Paraphrasing the Buttermilks guide... if you can climb v3, better step up. <br />Photo by Dave Evans.

The Scoop V3 6A  CA : San Jacinto Mountains : ... : G Boulder (aka Largo Stem)
AKA The Largo Scoop. This is a Black Mountain classic with perfect rock and a committing crux at the end a scary deadpoint off greasy smears to the lip. Sweet!It gets a lot of sun, so early morning or late afternoon are probably the best times to do it....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
