Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

Very fun, crimpy (of course). Fairly slick rock but on positive holds. Route trends right. Good warm up route.

Location

The first large wall you come to after crossing the bridge. Goes up the middle, slanting right. Just below and to the right of Expressway.

Protection

8 bolts to triple Mussy hooks

Extend an alpine draw for the first bolt to reduce the swing. Sep 2, 2013

One of the best warmup routes in the Central Gorge. Positive holds, easy relaxed moves. Could be deadly cold in freezy windy mornings, it's better to opt for Warmup Wall in a harsh weather conditions. Nov 4, 2014

Pretty exciting exit on this one, especially with the bolt hanger oriented the wrong way. If anyone has a wrench, they should fix it next time they're in the area.

Also found the first bolt to be super high on this one. Clipped the bolt on the 11c to the right and then back cleaned it after I clipped the first bolt on this one. Ymmv. Dec 31, 2017
This route is an excellent warm-up on the Social Platform and gets you thinking on your feet. It's 5.8 to the first bolt FYI. Nov 18, 2018
