Description 

This area offers a fine selection of isolated bouldering venues. All the areas consist of pocketed volcanic tuff, which offers good steep bouldering on generally good quality rock.

The problems are very similar to those found at The Happy Boulders, however, more often than not, you'll have the place to yourself.

Getting There 

The area is generally accessed from Tom's Place, which lies about 30 minutes North of Bishop, or 20 minutes South of Mammoth Lakes on the 395.

Moving up to the small pockets on Goldenrod, V6

Goldenrod V5 6C  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : North - Goldenrod Boulder
The perfect line. Start on pockets and follow the golden streak through a small square inclusion, and some smaller pockets up high. Go direct to finish and not toward the flake to the right. This is my vote for the best of its grade on Bishop Tuff, and possibly the best line on tuff on the Plateau. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
