My Mom Can Crank (5.12a), Owens River Gorge

Description 

This climb follows the obvious lefthand arete on white rock. Start up and at the 2nd bolt move left across a blank looking traverse on slick edges. Gain a stance at the base of the arete and head up on opposing holds to a long, blind move leftward. Juggier but awkward climbing leads up and back right to anchors.

Protection 

8 bolts to anchors

Wonderful and varied route. Excellent positioning and looks almost impossible from the ground, which probably keeps many off the route, this is unfortunate as this one is great for the feeling of accomplishment.
