On the north side of Hemlock and Smith lakes is some pretty sick granite.
Unfortunately, I failed to bring gear the weekend I was up in this area. However I am looking for partners to explore the possibilities of setting some routes.

Also some decent camp sites near hemlock lake.

Email me and let me know if interested in help develop this area.

Wouldn't that be in a Federal Wilderness where bolting is not allowed?

:twisted: That is one in the same area.

However who says we have to set any bolts. I personally don't care for them, and would rather find another way if possible to set pro rather than shoot a bolt.

On some the routes I do laps on, bolts just make the route that much easier and I find my self becoming more reliant on them than just climbing clean & smart.
