Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

Very thin face climb to the left of Gorgeous. Crux is at 3rd bolt, although it is fairly desperate from the ground up to this point. An easy run-out with huge fall potential follows the hard section, although if you make it through the crux moves, there is very little possibility you'll fall here; therefore, it seems fair to not give this an 'R' rating.

Definitely not R, you can get gear in horizontals in the "runout" section, if you actually brought gear down into the gorge. Mar 21, 2008
