The road to the Rock Creek boulders in October


With all the rock around there is little surprise that Rock Creek hosts some fine boulders.

Few easy recorded problems exist on the recognized boulders, so this is no area for beginners.

Getting There 

From Bishop head North on the 395, from Mammoth head South. When you get to Toms Place turn West and follow the road into Rock Creek.

The bouldering is mostly situated around the Big Meadow Campground which is reached after 4.5 miles.

Climbing Season

Weather station 16.2 miles from here

TJ slaps for the meat hook hold on Blood Brothers

Blood Brothers V7 7A+  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : The Boy Named Sue Boulder
An amazing line. Start as for Groove and Arete, then make tough moves left around the arete, finding a low crimp on the left face. Right hand goes to a meat hook hold high on the arete itself. Walk your feet up and slap way up and left for that distant sloper (crux). Now slab it up to the top!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

A friend and I lost a dog up in the Hilton/Davis Lakes area on July 16th. If anyone notices any sign of a lost, 90lb, black/brindle (white chest) hound dog roaming around in the woods, please call David at 305-333-8681. Any sign of him, however uncertain, will be much appreciated. Thanks everyone!
