ICE CLIMBING

Ok, you got to admit, for most of us the thought of climbing ice in the dead of winter is an absolute "No Way". From the challenging, short climbs of the Owens River Gorge to the big walls of Mt. Whitney and towering Sierra peaks, sport climbers rave about the exhilarating options in the Mammoth area. And doing it in winter is no different, except maybe the roads to get to the climbs are a bit more challenging... or possibly closed!ice climb

It's also a local passion, so you'll have no problem finding equipment or experienced guides and instructors to get started - or get more adventurous.

The Sierra has been well known to rock climbers and adventure seekers for years. It was only a matter of time before climbers ventured further east to areas near Mammoth Lakes, June Lake and the nearby Owens River Gorge. Learn to rock climb with a professional Ice Climber or venture to such natural wonders as Deadman's Summit, Indiana Summit, the Geothermal Boulders, Rock Creek, Alabama Hills and the Buttermilk.

Ice climberIf you are visiting Mammoth for the first time in the winter months, you have to give ice climbing a try for an exhilarating experience. You won't find anything like it anywhere. Lee Vining Canyon is the number one destination for ice climbers, followed by June Lake. Guides and Guidebooks are available at local stores describing the area's many great climbing areas.
