Wall Flower

5.9, Sport,  Avg: 2.5 from 46 votes
FA: Kelly Cordner, Derik Olson
California > Sierra Eastside > Bishop Area > Owens River Gorge > Central Gorge > Warm Up Wall
Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! 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.

[Hide Comment] 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
