Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

Docked two stars for a contrived crux.

Most of this pitch is excellent, steep, clean crimping. The slithery crux, at the 2nd-to-last bolt, would be an excellent change of pace if it were not easily avoided at a much easier grade by hand-traversing left on jugs for about 4'.

Location

On the recessed panel between the big roof of Enterprise and the larger face containing Photon Torpedo.

Protection

10 bolts, anchors

I didn't find the crux contrived at all. Great route Jan 7, 2012

Awesome pitch on perfect rock. Didn't find it to be contrived at all, but a bit soft maybe. Perhaps I took the alternate easy finish? I moved left with some cool moves up awesome steep jugs after the crimpy face and finished on a slab. Seemed like I was following the bolts though. Dec 1, 2014

one more vote for a non-contrived crux. This route was really a lot of fun. I even wished the "tenuous slab" up top gave you a little more run for your money Nov 21, 2015
Not contrived and not very "tenuous", glad about the not too tenuous part. Some of the best rock in the Gorge. Dec 7, 2016

This is a great route on pockets and jugs, with a crux at the end. One of the best in the gorge. Jan 25, 2017
