Strange place, but nice sportsclimbing on lava bases stone. Be ready to get dirty...
Personally I think it's great. And it's improving as more water flows through the gorge. But for many, it's just too close to the Buttermilks to warrant spending a day at. But even if you don't climb it, take a rest day and hike down into it, do some exploring.
Owens river is a deep, long gorge with tons of climbs. Most of the climbs are 150 feet or more. There are lots of different styles also. Upper gorge has more climbs with pockets compared to middle gorge that has a lot of crack climbing. All very well protected with bolts.
