Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

The crux is around the 3rd bolt. It is very steep and on thin hands. If I remember correctly there is a second crux clipping the 5th bolt (?). It is a fun climb and if you are there you should do it. Alas you may be pumped after doing ORGasm, or pretty much any route in the gorge.

Location

Just to the right of ORGasm. On the North face of the diahedral.

Protection

7 bolts to chains

A key hold has broken between bolts 3 and 4. It was lying on the ground at the base of the route. Instead of being a nice flake/jug and then a crucial foot, its a thin edge/pocket big enough for only the first digit of two (or 3 small) fingers. Climbed like .11d for me (I'm 5'6" with a +2" index) but like .11c to my tall boyfriend. Oct 15, 2012
