BETA PHOTO: Mothership Cliff, Owens River Gorge, the eastside....
Home to some of the best hard technical routes and some new steeper hard lines. There are also a couple projects in waiting, notably Holey Wars and the extension to Piranha. Also home to some long 5.11's. Excellent rock.
From the bottom of the central gully, hike north up the dirt road to the split at the toilet. Go left up the hill, contouring around the large talusd field on the left. When directly across from the Eldorado roof, look for a cairn on the left and a trail leading up to the cliff. The cliff is characterized by a long gray face on the left and a steep leaning wall on the right.

Amazing route on some of the best rock in the Gorge. It's climbing minimalism at it's best. Long moves on very thin holds. There are two rests before the last crux section which climbs through a mono - then you gotta hold on for the pump until the end. Powerful and techy. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
