Happy Boulders

Climbs 250 – Rocktype Volcanic tuff – Altitude 1349m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
Boulders and walls of volcanic tuff. Although the main valley faces south, you can find lots of shady spots around the boulders.

Approach notes
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!
