Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details


Make a few steep, bouldery moves off the ground past the first and second bolts up to the pockets in the right-facing corner. Punch it straight out the roof crack past a couple of valuable rests, then fight the pump to pull the lip. Make a couple more sequences up to the chains.

The boulder problem start is definitely the crux of the line and a little bit out of the character with the rest of the route which is basically endurance crack climbing. Starting up the crack to the left (Independent Worm Saloon) and linking into the top Gape Index is an awesome link up that avoids the heinous boulder problem. I would call this link up .12a. This is the easiest line that pulls over the lip of the cave. Nov 20, 2013
