Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description [Suggest Change]

A second-pitch variation to Quail Trail--short but very sweet!

Begin by climbing the first pitch of Quail Trail. From the intermediate belay stance, traverse left and up to a clean hand crack. Follow this to the top.

Location [Suggest Change]

Starts from the end of Pitch 1 of Quail Trail.

Protection [Suggest Change]

4 bolts

The traverse left that begins this route feels exposed and insecure (and is the crux of the route). Those not completely comfortable at the grade may wish to carry a small cam/TCU (<1/2") to sew this up. Dec 21, 2006

I second that Jon. There is no reason to bolt this. Jul 3, 2008

For John:

The LADWP enforces a strict "no tradding" rule in the Gorge as part of the use agreement. Bolts only! First offense is a confiscation of any hardware deemed "Trad" and a $50.00 fine payable to the ASCA. Jul 3, 2008

Then why are there pure trad climbs listed in the guide book...I've climbed most of the "trad with bolts" lines here and just skipped maybe about 50 bolts in doing so...If someone tried to stop me well, well there going to have an a little more then access issue with me Aug 29, 2008
