Mike Arechiga on, Nuke The Whales. 5.9


Fun steep new route, pretty clean for brand new Owens routes.


Starts just right of Environmental Terrorist and heads up and right.


8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

Still a bit dirty, hope this one cleans up in time as it's a good warmup

That big block flake around the third bolt or so that you move right on seems scary to me...anyone else?
