Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

Varied and interesting and hard -- Caldera for the anemic? -- Smokey the Beer begins with a surprisingly difficult move to pass the first bolt. Then the fun: up right, out left, make love to the arete, and extend for welcome/necessary jugs.

Location

Starts on DWP concrete block just right of Megalomaniac -- 1st bolt adjacent to the obvious crack.

Protection

6 bolts.

Opening crack moves to the first bolt
get your attention, couple crippy moves to the arete, one more move over bulge to hugs to the anchors. Super fun route that deserves more stars. Nov 17, 2017
