Description 

Electrocuticles begins at the point where the broken fence just meets the wall. This excellent line fires up a nearly black and nearly blank wall about 60 feet to the right of Winter Warmer and a bit left of the Solar Panel. Negotiate a reachy jug haul to stand on micro feet below the black wall. A few tricky moves on the arete lead to a clip that almost provides a top rope for the crux. Suck in your breath after the crux, 5.12a, for a dicey run out to more jugs, another clip or two and the anchor. Electrocuticles gets two stars for for rock, the continuity, and the tricky moves. This stuff is thin by Table Mountain standards and the climbing is very technical. Nice job and a nice eye by the FA team.


Protection 

QD only. This 50 foot route needs about 8 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.

When I sent this it was one of my first 12s, so I didn't have a lot to compare it to. Looking back now that I've bagged a few more climbs in that range, I'd have to say that this is a bit harder than 12a. 12b might even be a little soft.

Really sweet line. Couldn't get any thinner on the arete. Worth ticking often. This climb should see more traffic.
