Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details


Start in a short layback crack, up to low angle rock leading to the base of the dihedral. Layback up the dihedral to a tricky finish through the overlapping corners. Ends on a big ledge with anchors. It is possible to lower off with a 70 meter rope but it is very close and the climber must lower to the ledge to the left. There are intermediate anchors for using a shorter rope. Just climbing to these anchors is probably 5.8

A good route, definitely worth getting on if you're in the area. Hosts features and movement akin to granite climbing, fun! Mar 6, 2015
Nice job Neil! Wasn't feeling the go juice on this one, nor was my partner. Kept going up and down at the crux and staring at those empty bolt holes wishing for a bolt in one. Didn't help that there were already bail biners from the last climber. Made it easy to give up my lead. Thought for sure my partner would clean it up for me. I gonna play the "still getting over the flue" card and save the "I'm just light" card for another day. The 2 routes on either side sure look like the real deal. Feb 1, 2018
