About Alabama Hills:

A scenic high-desert climbing area situated above the town of Lone Pine with Mt Whitney and the Sierra crest as a backdrop. Close to 300 routes (trad and sport) on variable quality Josh-like rock. Stacks of easy to moderate well-protected climbs here as most development is quite recent. Free camping nearby with Bishop only an hour away. A fun laid-back area that's well worth a visit or two.
Nearest town or city: Lone Pine
Directions: From the town of Lone Pine turn west onto Whitney Portal Rd. and drive several miles uphill until it levels out. From here either make a right onto Movie Flat Rd. or a left onto Horseshoe Meadow Rd. depending on the area you choose to climb at.
