There are no easy sections on the Energizer, it just keeps going, and going... going into the tree about halfway up makes it easier, slightly easier climbing to the anchor. Stellar and sustained.


Bolted face to arete, just right of Church Bowl Chimney.

I can't remember which, but I found the 7th or 8th bolt really awkward to clip. I enjoyed the climb though, the first half of the climb is excellent.

The beginning seems to go two ways:

A) stay on the arete, and layback to the first bolt
B) go straight up the face to the first bolt

The rest of this climb is, as the description says, sustained. Incredible amounts of perfect stone and 5.11 climbing await the aspiring slab climber...

Felt tough, but my slab tech is lacking.
