Lee Vining Canyon
**Lee Vining Canyon: With creeks and aspen groves this is a pretty scenic place to climb. Mostly easy climbs.
Directions: From 395 at Lee Vining head south and take Tioga Pass (CA-120) head 3.5 miles then turn left on Poole Power
Plant Road. The Roadside Boulder is about .3 miles down the road on the left with a pullout right next to it. The Aspen Boulder
is 1.3 miles down the road, just before the Aspen Campground and the boulder is in the Aspens just behind the pull out.

Take the obvious rail ups,
good fun and a jug haul, I'm
not real sure about the flutter
I gave it, its high enough and
it pulls you off your pad, but I
also did it a thunder storm
and the wind and drizzle
probably had an effect on me.

on the back side. I didn't
check it out.
1. V3*** Start on a good rail and work it up and left to the
left arete. Good Fun
1a. The SDS/Low start under the roof is much harder.
