Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details


Chimney in corner leads to nice jams and stems past a steep section. After that, enjoyable face climbing continues to the anchors.


The belayer needs to be on the ledge for this one. It's possible to lower to the ledge with a 70m rope, otherwise, lower to the anchors of "Monsters of Rock", then lower or rap from there.


12 bolts


The new bolts are both in great condition, but one of the hangers is pretty loose. (It seems fine for now though; just loose) Thanks for replacing them, MisterE! I'm the one you told about them on saturday. ha Nov 17, 2015

Replaced the steel oval 'biners at the anchors today with hardened steel Fixe Draco's.

Thanks ASCA! Nov 14, 2015

Definitely needs a 70m rope. Nov 4, 2013
Some friends and I literally stretched our 70m in order to belay from and lower all the way to the ground...left our rope thru the Paradise anchors and added a directional at MOR anchors in order to TR that route. Oct 8, 2010

Measured from the start of the dihedral this route isn't quite 115 feet (I believe). My belayer, standing right at the start of the dihedral, had enough rope to lower me safely on a 60M rope. Mar 14, 2010
