Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

A full value 10c with a hard start and some tricky business up high. I thought the cruxes were not as marked in the book (c. 4th bolt) but rather at the beginning and between 6th & 7th bolts

Location

Start on pillar on left side of Big Tower formation. Belayer can belay from beneath and left of pillar or from the pillar (using the first bolt as an anchor).

Protection

7 bolts.

I really liked this route! Only negative was one hard clip up high the rest wast bolted perfectly. Oh and what's with the anchor, very lame. Mar 2, 2016

Lame anchor issue has been rectified. Mussy hooks and chain added to equalize existing anchors and make it easier to lower off. This climb is sustained! Definitely a bit old school. Apr 2, 2016
You guys are great, thanks for all your work down there! Apr 3, 2016
