TJ Lake with the first winter snows on the Mammoth...
This is one of the smaller areas in the Mammoth Basin. Although the number of routes are limited there is some bouldering around the lake, and the scenery is worth a trip alone.
To reach the main bouldering area head to the southern part of the lake.
Take highway 203 to the stop light at the Village. Continue straight on Lake Mary rd.. Follow this to the left turn at the Pokonobe Lodge. Take a right at the "T" and continue up to the Lake George parking area. Hike around the right side of the shore until it is possible to take a left up an open hill side on a well worn path.
Follow the path up and passed Lake Barrett. TJ Lake is soon reached. The TJ West faces you as you approach the lake.
