Thousands of climbers come to the Buttermilks each year for many reasons — world-class bouldering, winter-long access, and sweeping vistas rank among the top.
We have a lot of love for this spot. And noting how the number of climbers continues to increase each year, we wanted to do our part to steward it well. Thus was born the Buttermilks Kiosk.
We see it as a friendly way to help everyone keep this spot enjoyable for generations to come.
And we’re proud to have partnered with activists, passionate climbers, and organizations to develop, create, and install it, including:
- Jolie Varela of Indigenous Women Hike
- Matt Ulery, founder of the Bay Area Climbers Coalition (and now a Bishop local)
- Payahuunadü Alliance
- Bishop Paiute-Shoshone Tribe
- Friends of the Inyo
- Bishop Area Climbers Coalition
- Access Fund
