Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

Awesome sunny wall above a talus field. Nothing harder than .10d.

Getting There

From the road, look for the major old ruin past the new power plant. Drop down and cross the river on a skinny bridge and grunt up the talus slope to the base.

This definitely provides a quieter alternative to the Central Gorge. The climbing isn't as good as the Great Wall of China, but if you pick the routes there are some nice climbs. Apr 14, 2007
Does anyone know the name of the routes to the left of laser beam? Directly next to laser beam is a cool stem start route but is only like a 5.7. There is a another route continuing left that is also follows the arete (mistaken it for laser beam) seemed like a 5.8 route though. There are several other routes that continue left, one had Quickdraws on it. Oct 11, 2016
