Bishop may be the best bouldering area in the world. It's certainly one of the most famous, with a high concentration of world-class problems from beginner-friendly romps to standard-setting testpieces. Sealing the deal are two distinctly different kinds of rock—each with its own variations—plus magnificent scenery, consistently sunny weather, cheap camping, free hot springs, and convenient local amenities in the town of Bishop itself. This full color guidebook covers 600+ of the area's best problems, in Rock Creek, the Happy and Sad boulders, Druid Stones, and both roadside and backcountry areas in the famed Buttermilk Country.
