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

Description

A nice route starting out in a short crack, followed by face climbing up to a gentle bulge. Probably the most densely bolted route on the warmup wall.

I just made up the name and don't know anything about the FA. This route is relatively new, and does not appear in any guidebook I'm aware of. The only online reference to it I can find is here (2012): mountainproject.com/v/new-r…

Location

Between "Welcome to the gorge" and "Clip Jr." Starts on a short section of crack.

Protection

9 bolts to hook anchor.

its a Kelly Cordner route; goes at 5.9 and is well protected. there is a 20' or so section of 3rd class in the middle between headwalls that is unprotected (and unnecessary to have bolts.) great climbing on clean rock put up 2 years ago. Feb 1, 2014

Not for a new leader. I'm a pretty solid climber and thought the run out through the "3rd class" to be unwarranted for the grade. Once to the top of the 3rd class you have one fifth class move before clipping again. This is a sport crag with that has gone as far as bolting cracks, ground fall potential on a 5.9 should not be a thing here. Cue in the old crustys.

With that said, great route none the less! Apr 8, 2019
