Access Issue: Bridges Out! IMPORTANT LADWP NEGOTIATIONS!!
Due to liability concerns, bridges are being removed in the Owens River Gorge at the request of LADWP. The Bishop Area Climbers Coalition and the Access Fund are currently in negotiations with LADWP to get this issue resolved. In the meantime, please continue to be good land stewards by respecting these bridge closures and finding alternate crossing points until this issue is resolved.
1) Never park or camp overnight at the access points. 2) Always park off the pavement, taking great care to avoid blocking the gates. 3) Clean up after your dogs. (Local climbers are finding abandoned doggie poop bags.) 4) Pack out all trash and TP, including picking up after others. 5) Use the outhouses if at all possible.
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.
