Boulders and walls of volcanic tuff. Although the main valley faces south, you can find lots of shady spots around the boulders.
No problems - see the rockfax miniguide for details...
From Bishop, head north out of town and take Highway 6 for a mile or so to the second of two roads on the right (signed Five Bridges Road). Follow this to a crossroads just after a construction site and take the dirt road on the left (Chalk Bluff Road). Follow this for a couple of miles to a parking area with portaloo. A path leads from here up and into the heavenly boulders.
|Plentiful rock with vicious sharp crimps and sloping pockets at all grades. Don't be stopped by the bouldering nearest the parking lot - keep going, it gets better!|
