Red-pointing in the Owens River Gorge at Solarium. The ruins-of-Mordor ambiance and occasional self-chalking slopers might deter some. But the view of the Sierra from up at the cars makes up for the gloominess. And the awesome quantity of great routes on bullet-hard, pocketed, basalt places the Gorge a cut above all other western sport areas, (except maybe Smith Rock). Thank you first-ascensioneers!
