Access Issue: Bridges Out! IMPORTANT LADWP NEGOTIATIONS!!
Due to liability concerns, bridges are being removed in the Owens River Gorge at the request of LADWP. The Bishop Area Climbers Coalition and the Access Fund are currently in negotiations with LADWP to get this issue resolved. In the meantime, please continue to be good land stewards by respecting these bridge closures and finding alternate crossing points until this issue is resolved.
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.
Mega Mega is a new 40m, 11a route on the left side of Riverside Island. This is a very spectacular and fun route with a pumpy last section with giant holds. 20 bolts
Right of Ratso. To get to the route go left after crossing the bridge then you can tunnel under a rock and go to the edge of the water. The route goes slightly out left over the water and uses the first bolt of a traverse that was put in to access the routes to the left that had their bases flooded. Go back right and up after clipping the first bolt.
20 bolts. Lowering anchors at top. anchors also in the middle for doing the route as 2 pitches or use it for doing 2 rappels.
