Located above the town of Mammoth Lakes is Crystal Crag. This crag is named for a huge vein of crystal that runs through it. Our route crosses over this impressive rock formation. The climb is five pitches with many 3rd class moves interspersing 5th class sections. The climb finishes with an enjoyable ridge traverse high above many lakes and pine trees surrounded by the Mammoth Crest.
