Description 

Flux Capacitor is the steep slightly harder route just right of Black Hole. Do the approach 10d arete or Flux Direct (12b) to get to the Flux Capacitor headwall. It can be identified with the one fixed chain to start the headwall climbing. Steep relentless jug haul moves with some cruxes will make your forearms melt.

Location 

Right of black hole.

Protection 

bolts

This route is underrated. If you don't think Black Hole is pumpy, climb this.

I kinda got psyched on the Gorge again this season and this route (and a few others in the area) was one of the reasons why. This thing is rad. Like Black Hole but a letter or two harder. It's possible to knock it down to size by dogging every other bolt, but you'll have to work a little if you want to go straight through to the anchors.
