Kirkwood Lake

Kirkwood Lake refers to a largish area surrounding the lake on all sides rather than any one area. I've included an overview of the climbs I know of, but I am sure there are more and the bouldering options are huge here as well. the best way to find areas is to explore for yourself. Just hike to a high point on one side of the lake and survey the area on the opposing side, if you see cliffs go check them out and it is likely you will find some bolts. With everything so spread out there are a number of rock types available from cracks to corners to steep featurelss faces. At close to 8,000' the season is rather short but that also makes it a great place on hot summer days. The lake also makes it a great place to climb and then cool off with jumping from the rope swing or off the crow's nest. Camping is available (kinda spendy) at the Kirkwood Lake campground.
