Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description

vertical climbing in a chimney. Stem to 3rd bolt then transition to face climbing. Go right to the arete a few bolts from the top for easy climbing. Lots of big holds. it's possible to glance off the opposite side of the chimney if you fall. Wear a helmet. The crux is about 2/3rd of the way up.

Location

to the right and on the opposite wall from Hip Pockets.

Protection

11 bolts

Interesting climb. Mostly very positive holds and all seemed fairly solid or at least easy enough to avoid looser looking stuff. The crux for me was very close to the top making one of the last clips, only non incut hold on the route. Kinda creepy with the wall behind you. Also a bit heady for the second getting to the anchor after unclipping the last draw. And it's a very nice anchor at that. Thanks Kelly and Derek! Dec 28, 2013

Route description should be amended to read "...stem up to the 2nd bolt (not 3rd bolt) before casting off onto the face above..." this puts the crux on the bump move getting to the bucket by the 3rd bolt. One can stay on the face from the get go, at the bottom, but it bumps the difficulty rating to 11+ what with the rounded bouldery layaway moves off the initial start ledge- be aware of the deck potential however. There is a move to add an additional bolt at the top to allow a direct ending to the anchors but this will increase the difficulty of the route to 5.10d. Generally, on this route: when in doubt, go right. Jan 3, 2015
