Climbs at this crag
From Mammoth, go over Minaret Summit to Reds Meadows. This requires an early start to beat the shuttle bus service in the summer - cars are banned after 7:00am or take the bus. After about mid September this no longer applies. From the parking follow the guidebook description. NOTE: The area was subject to a fire in the early 90s and there are still many burnt and rotting trees standing. These fall in windy weather and apart from being dangerous, change the footpath. At the time of writing (Oct 09), the small path joining the footpath to the stock trail starts 50m past the large boulder and not just left of it. After Boundary Creek the Crag Trail branches off left 100m after the creek and not 30 feet. This may well change this winter...
