Access Issue: Protect Access in Owens River Gorge! Details

Description [Edit]

The hardest move is about mid way at the first bulge but then the clock is ticking as you fight the pump to the end. Clipping the last bolt can be tricky if you don't find the blind hold or commit to a higher jug. The steep finish to the Mussys can feel quite exposed. Awesome fun!

ATTENTION as a joke we are calling this an advanced area, your standard belay card does not get you in. If you have trouble getting down the Central Gully then think again. This is not a good place for kids babies or dogs. The climbs are great but the base is exposed with a lot of loose rock. Getting to the routes requires a loose exposed scramble. There is not much of a base and it is a steep slope down to the river. The trail from Warning Signs is also steep, loose and exposed. When you pull your rope it will likely get caught on the ledge above the base and pulling it further will bring rocks down. If you drop something it will likely fall down the steep slope and end up in the river below.

Protection [Edit]

10 or 11 bolts (may want one shoulder length)

Getting after it, Jeff - Nice! Clever, as well.

I am on a moratorium since home improvements... ;)

Living vicariously, though!

Can't wait to check some of the new stuff... Dec 16, 2016
