Access Issue: Bridges Out! IMPORTANT LADWP NEGOTIATIONS!! Details

Description

This west-facing wall which rises straight out of the river, contains a few gems that you will almost certainly have to yourself. Most routes feature strong evaporative cooling for the belayer.

Sad note for those for whom 11c is their sweet spot: The right side of Failsafe contains a 4 & 3 star 11c's whose starts are now submerged by the river. Maybe some enterprising person will create an access esplanade.

Getting There

Across the river from Warm Out Wall. FS has two sectors separated by the river. River crossing for each sector exist slightly south/downstream of WOW.
