Access Issue: Bridges Out! IMPORTANT LADWP NEGOTIATIONS!! High water release May 13, 2019!!! Details


Varied climbing - face to ramp to slab to short corner to more slab.  The first two bolts are very close to each other, it looks like the FA placed one, then changed their mind.  I'd recommend back-cleaning the first if you clip the second, or suffer the rope drag consequences.


Right next to the river, middle of the wall.


13 bolts, mussy anchors.

The route description for "Beach That Whale" next door mentions this as "Barbella's new .10a", hence the name. If anyone knows the real name I'll add it. Apr 25, 2018

nice route, long and varied, harder moves at the start (i found going straight up on the left easier than traversing in from the right) and again around the 5th/6th bolt. FA -'j. barbella'

it'll be interesting to see what happens to the start of this route (and access in general) when we get some high water flows. Apr 22, 2019
