Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details


This used to be a variation from "Big Screen", but someone with a good eye (not me) found a fun line left from the initial dihedral. Climb through steep jugs left to a fun and exposed buttress. Slink through a series of techy face moves to a fun ending with great position.

This route shares the upper bolts and anchors with "Bust a Move" (5.12a) which one can top-rope easily.


South-facing (right) side of Big Tower - the highest platform - look for lines of bolts splitting from a low ledge.


7 bolts, Mussy hooks


This is a super fun classic. Great rock and awesome position on the edge of a blunt arete. Nice lower out into space from the top. Nov 30, 2017
