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

Description

Very long and steep climb. Thin crux down low (which can be avoided by climbing way right) to steep jug haul to pumpy bulge.

Location

Can just lower to the large ledge with a 70m rope with the belayer on the ground. Be very careful of rope ends.

Protection

11 bolts

Fantastically long. The runout sections didn't seem too threatening, especially since they are high on the route. In my opinion, the 5.11 rating comes from the sustained nature of the route, not because there are any particularly memorable cruxes. Feb 27, 2012
My favorite Gorge pitch! The runouts in the middle keep my attention every time. Jan 5, 2014

Did this with an old 70m today and it barely made it ledge to ledge, no way could we have belayed from the ground. A fresh 70m should be fine, but probably best to belay from the ledge (single belay bolt) if your rope is old.

That said, mega fun pitch. Well worth doing! Nov 29, 2014
