Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

Super fun route with the easiest approach in the Gorge. First crux (10a) is a technical traverse to the right (can be avoided by going way low, but you'd only be cheating yourself), second crux (10c) is the overlap to the pocketed head wall. Much better than it looks!

Protection

Bolts, a bunch of them

I loved this climb! Three different parties walked by and were almost shocked we stopped to climb it. A couple of them decided it looked fun. If you like slab definitely give this a go. Nov 23, 2015

Softest rock climb in the gorge. i was able to make one of the pockets deeper with my fingernail. Stay to the right for the 5.9 variation. Dec 30, 2013

This route is fun, really worth doing on the way out of the Gorge. Not sure if this is 5.10c, felt more like 10a to me, but I may be wrong. I admit that I love low angle routes and that the character of this route was exactly my cup of tea, but it just felt too easy to be 10c (and I'm positive I stayed on route) Sep 30, 2013

A good lead. Quite fun. On your way back to the car, pull the rope and harness back out of the bag and give it a go! Apr 1, 2013

I spied this line a few years back, but never thought anyone would care to climb it so I left it alone. Guess I was wrong. Jan 18, 2013
