Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge!
Los Angeles Water and Power grants climbers access and can easily take it away. It is absolutely critical that we remain on good terms with this agency.
1) Never park or camp overnight at the access points. 2) Always park off the pavement, taking great care to avoid blocking the gates. 3) Clean up after your dogs. (Local climbers are finding abandoned doggie poop bags.) 4) Pack out all trash and TP, including picking up after others. 5) Use the outhouses if at all possible.
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…
Between "Welcome to the gorge" and "Clip Jr." Starts on a short section of crack.
