Comments: The Negress Wall while featuring the most compact and least friable rock in the gorge, is also the greasiest and most slippery.

Comments: The original rating for this climb was actually 11b when it was put up. It was thought to be just a hair harder then Orange Plasma.

Comments: This route has, as of 5/16, no lowering hardware. If one wishes to do this route, bring quick links or leaver biners. Am curious why so many Goolsby routes are set up like this one w/ no easy or safe way to descend.

Comments: In the almost 6 years of this routes existence, it has in fact cleaned up- with the passage of ascentionists- to the point that it no longer is a "deadly bomb" but is actually quite fun and safe. A 60 meter rope will- on rappel- stretch to the point that the ends are slightly below the 2nd bolt allowing a pretty easy and secure 3rd class descent. As long as one is comfortable with this caveat, it can be done.

Comments: This climb, as of some 5 years and running, has largely lost a crucial left handhold that used to exist over the roof that allowed the crux move to occur. Like much of the Owens Gorge, this has- with the passage of so much traffic- eroded out. This route now largely requires a fairly stiff dyno to the finishing hold, of some length. Only the most naive con themselves into blithely thinking that the Gorge is "unchanging" from one year to the next- it's not. 11a- not even close!

Comments: Do take care at clipping the third bolt from eroded holds. More then a couple climbers have paid the price by decking on the ledge below when they've pulled slack to clip and fallen before getting the rope in. Much safer with a long draw preclipped on the bolt.
