      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Help me remember the name of 2 clinbing areas..

Recommended Posts

Both North of Bishop right off of HWY 395, both south of HWY120 to Tioga Pass.

 

One was a small grouping of sharp granite mini-domes east of the hwy about 1/2 a mile. Not a major area but had 2-30 sport climbs. I think this is them: 37° 45.447' N 118° 57.504' W

 

Another was near here, RIGHT off the road. A small cliff of basalt and tuft-like stuff. 20-30 ft high max. Maybe this place? 37° 46.151' N 119° 0.305' W The name of the "area" was (something) pass. EDIT: AHA! THe New Rock and Road is online.... Deadman's Summit.

 

Any insights?

 

Thanks,

Dave

In the event you don't get a reliable source here (I have been to Owens and Buttermilks only so am not one), but if you call Mammoth Moutain Supply or Wilson's Eastside Sports in Bishop you will get a wealth of information without having to use GPS.

Ahhh Pine Creek! I miss the east side.

Cardinal Pinnacle, Rock Creek, Bachar Boulders, Deadmans 1/2/3, Clark's Canyon, Benton Crags, Happy Boulders, Buttermilks, Aolean Butte, Owens, Dike Wall, etc. etc. etc. So much climbing and not even counting Whitney area, or Yosemite, ans north. What a Mecca. Which state has more climbing, California or Utah???
