Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

Amazing route on some of the best rock in the Gorge. It's climbing minimalism at it's best. Long moves on very thin holds. There are two rests before the last crux section which climbs through a mono - then you gotta hold on for the pump until the end. Powerful and techy.

Location

At the Mothership Cliff on the smooth face to the right of Piranha

Best hard route in the gorge. Sustained crimping on bullet rock. Thanks Todd G. for hooking this thing up. Apr 11, 2012
Brilliant hard and sustained route. True gorge power endurance test piece. Much failure on this one before red-pointing. I'd give it 13c. Mar 29, 2014

I looked at this face for years...then i finally asked Kevin Leary if I could bolt it (he had a red-tagged bolt at the bottom). Kevin was cool and said go for it. I worked this thing many times ... and had quite a few holds break on me. I TR'd it 3 times clean ... but didn't have the guns to hold on and clip for the RP. Katie called me and asked if she could work on it and I said ok. I put an anchor atop the line to the right ... should be another fine thin one. Sep 25, 2015
