A stellar, incredibly consistent route. Every one of the first four pitches is worth the price of admission. The bolting is generous, by Power Dome standards, with protection where you need it, but even some of the easier climbing will test your friction prowess.

Hopefully Eric will chime in here with pitch-by-pitch bolt counts, but ten draws and a small assortment of tricams (for the holes on pitch 5) was plenty. My feeling was that the cruxes on the first four pitches clocked in at about 10a, 10b, 9, and 10a; however, all four pitches are game-on from anchor to anchor, rarely letting up until you clip the chains.

This one is only going to get better with more traffic. And as an added bonus, it is RIGHT next to The Paraclete, so you can race your friends to the summit.

This is the most consistently difficult route that I have climbed on Power Dome. Similar to other routes, it is comprised mainly of face climbing on small edges, rails, and slopers. Be prepared for lots of hand-foot matches, mantles, and "trust it and move" smearing. The first 4 pitches are engaging and fairly unrelenting in difficulty. Kudos to the FA party for putting up such a amazing route.

P1 (5.10a, 5-bolts): Looking up from the base of the climb, the crux of the pitch is obvious. Friction and tiny edges get you from bolt 2 to 3. Fairly sustained, probably no moves easier than 5.9.

P2 (5.10b, 9-bolts): The crux is right off the belay, through the 2nd bolt. Have your belayer stand off to the side as there is potential to fall on them if you blow the crux. The remainder of the pitch is stout and consistent, ranging between 5.9 to 5.10a. One of the best pitches I've climbed on Power Dome.

P3 (5.9 PG13, 7 bolts): The climbing eases finally, though it becomes more insecure and heavily reliant on friction climbing. There's a substantial run between bolts 2 and 3, with moves in the 5.8+ to 5.9 range. The climbing eases through a section of jugs, only to throw another 5.9 crux near the end between the last bolt and the anchors.

P4 (5.10a, 7 bolts): We thought it was going to be easy from here... we were wrong. Yet another consistent pitch with an early crux and barely easing climbing thereafter.

P5 (5.7, 3 bolts): Finally, solution pockets galore! This is why you brought your tricams. Keep your eyes open though, there are some bolts near the pockets.
