This is a selective guidebook covering the extensive bouldering to be found in Bishop in California. Bishop is a bouldering paradise, a gem of a rugged little high desert mountain town in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. The bouldering is high in the mountains above the town, and is on two principle rock types. There is the pocketed Bishop tuff of volcanic rock at Tableland (Happy and Sad bouldering areas) and Sherwin Plateau, and the generally crimpier quartz monzonite rock found at Buttermilk Country. This is one of the few places in the world where a high concentration of world-class bouldering combines with magnificent scenery, and near-perfect weather.
This guidebook covers more than 600 problems across a wide range of problems. It covers the Buttermilk Country (including outlying areas like Dales Camp and the Pollen Grains), The Happy and Sad Boulders at Tableland, plus the Outro and Essays areas at The Druid Stones and Rock Creek. All the problems are shown on colour photo topos, along with boulder maps. Problems are banded in 4 different colours; red for problems between V14 and V10; Orange for problems between V9 and V6; Blue for problems between V5 and V3; and Green for problems between V2 and V0.
Published by Wolverine Publishing in February 2016 this guidebook includes many stunning action photographs showing the bouldering at Bishop at its best.
