Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details


Good Thing is one of the better short bouldery lines in the Gorge (there aren't that many). It starts at the top of the scree slope which makes a horrible belay spot. Climb crimps up to the second bolt then awkwardly pull into the undercling and make a long reach up left to a crimp. Paste your feet on the tiny edges and deadpoint for a good edge. This first crux is hard and somewhat heady since your feet are above the second bolt and the ground ain't that far away. At the third bolt another long dynamic move to an edge, followed by a hard gaston move at the fourth. After this its easy climbing up the arete if you can still hold on. Hard for the short.

Bouldery and hard. A real gem of a route. It deserves more traffic. This would be .13a at many crags. Jan 5, 2007
