Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details


This route climbs a mostly vertical face on good edges with the crux being a slightly thinner sequence of crimps about midway up.

Short and to the point, this atypical route favors technique and bouldering skills more than endurance, and seemed a slightly easier tick than the neighboring Thieves In The Temple (5.12a).


Located on the right side of the Staying Power Towers just right of the long and classic Blood Sugar Sex Magik (5.10d).

A difficult onsight. Once I worked out the moves I really enjoyed the crux sequence. Good flow on pretty small holds. It's also a little more interesting than the average crimp-pull-repeat routes in the middle gorge. Probably lower quality only because it's short. Nov 15, 2016
