Kernville Rock Climbs is a great guide to climbing in the Kernville area. There are upwards of 100 climbs in this new guide to “New Directions Cliffs and Kern Slabs” by Herb Laeger. This guide encompasses almost all of those climbs. The map-like format makes it very easy to find any particular route, especially those located on New Directions Cliffs, which has several adjacent climbing faces, and which in the past has been difficult to decipher.
Wherever possible, route lengths, number of bolts, rappel stations, and required gear are pointed out. All the Kernville rock climbs are located only five miles upriver from the town of Kernville. Additionally, they are only a few hundred yards off the main road thus making this area readily accessible. Finally, the climbing is on excellent granite.
The guide is printed on high quality waterproof, tear-resistant plasticized paper for longevity.
