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

Campground Arete V10 7C+  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Campground Boulder
First climbed by John Sherman around 1988. A critical hold broke on the arete eventually, and the crux went from V6 to V10, after Sharma spent nearly an hour working out the move around 2001. I had the pleasure of witnessing both ascents of this classic line....[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!
