Access Issue: Bridges Out! IMPORTANT LADWP NEGOTIATIONS!! Details


Crack leads to a strenuous digedral, then move left around the arete and climb a series of technical moves through bulges. Lower off. Might be my favorite sport climb, amazingly beautiful and exposed movement.


Prominent crack system on middle buttress. Just left of Northern Pike.


15 bolts. Anchors at top.

cool climb for sure. all of the crack and dihedral is lower angle and pretty easy if you use the feet available. then find your way through the steepness and to the anchors. have fun! May 29, 2011
Ok well... Maybe I wasn't having an "on" day, but the top moves of this were pretty awkward and hard for 11c. An interesting route for sure, but given my experience I can't justify 11c or 4 stars. It is bolted very well, just....awkward. Mar 27, 2012

This is hands-down the BEST climb in the gorge. Exposure, problem solving, wild stemming, rad tubing and chimneying, a thought provoking ending, and kinda eerie. What a line! Not one to miss. This is a trad climbers JAM! SOOO FUN Feb 13, 2014
Agree, awesome climb...fun, challenging and well bolted. 4 out of 5 stars. As for hands down the best??? Feb 16, 2014

I feel it is harder than Lalaland and Skeleton in the closet. And better! Feb 29, 2016
I think it's the softest 11c in the Gorge. Northern Pike is harder for me. Mar 1, 2016

Great quality, varied and a long line. Tough onsight. If you're looking for something that's technical, devious and not pumpy, this is a good option. Hard to rate compared to something in the other Owens style of pump factor, but this is certainly a step up from Grindrite at Gotham City. 11c redpoint grade for me. Mar 20, 2017
