Looking for history, info and stuff on climbing in the Shaver Lake area. This would include Wimovi Pluton, Dogma Dome, Bald Mountain, Land Of The Hunderd Foot Boulders, Condome and Dinky Dome.

Found old bolts on Dogma (aka Kangaroo Crag)in the late 80's that I would like to know more about as well as the super trad Bard Bros. exploits on Condome...got a bunch of route names there but don't know what goes with what...yikes!

Yer help will help put together the history there....thanks, flydude.

There's a nice contingent of West Side Locals that should be along any minute to beta you. (I'll be lurking.)

Spent more than a few summers at Lakeshore/Sierra Summit working for Outward Bound- can't say I rose anywhere close to the level of the WS Locals in terms of beta, but I can understand your aspirations!

Leave it alone. I hope those who know keep quiet. I went to the Leap this summer and I was so happy to live in a guide free area.

Jeff Harris turned me on to the Land of a Hundred foot Boulders back in the Mid 80's. Andy DesJarlis & I visted there a few times. Two things stand out; the boulders themselves are not 100' tall and every route we climbed is way harder than I can climb now.

Mr. Doughnut - how you doing?

Doing well P Rob, A few years back I rode the Bald Mountain Jeep trail and there was a Toyota truck with an extension ladder on a lumber rack parked near the entrance to the land of the 15- 60' boulders (name changed to reflect the true size). Never found the owner and always wondered if they were boulderers.

We accessed it via the Harris express- seemed very much like USFS land - been wanting to go back up there with my bear dog. Blaine & I did Knocking on Heavens Door at TH this past Sunday.We chose to use the fixed pro that was placed subsequent to the FA - a lot of fun - impressive doughnut Power used on the FA.You up to do anything this Sunday?

Have you spoken with Paul Martzen? I remember BITD that he had collected some relevant info
