BETA PHOTO: It's Electrifying, 5.9

Description 

Start up using either only pockets, or more naturally (and more fun) stem your way to the first bolt. Continue on a number of large pockets, with the occasional smaller pocket and edge needed. After the fourth bolt the pockets mostly disappear leaving small edges on which to get to a rounded ledge. After the ledge, a move or two up steeper terrain puts you at the chains (don't fall after the ledge—it'd be a bad thing).


Location 

Immediately obvious where the trail arrives at Pocket Rocks, the route climbs a relatively narrow-looking, rounded tower-like structure, to the left of a chimney with a collection of sticks in it a ways up (looks sort of like a nest). The route to the right (More Bolts) has a weird, homemade-looking hanger on the first bolt.


Protection 

4 bolts, chain anchors.
