Climbing Area Description
Located near Bishop, the Buttermilks has a reputation as one of the best bouldering areas in California. This climbing area features boulders of monzonite granite, scattered by glacial forces in some ancient time. The scenery is beautiful and the crowds can be plentiful, but the 300+ boulder problems cannot be beat. A smattering of ropes climbs also exist in the area. Decent weather can be found year round. For more information, check out the following guide books: "Bishop Area Climbs" by John Moynier and Marty Lewis, "The Bishop Bouldering Survival Kit, Version 2" by Mick Ryan (rockfax).
