Totally engaged in the crux.

Description 

5.10 and 5.11 moves make the beginning of this climb just hard enough that when you finally reach the crux just before the anchors you will be pumped! Make sure you take advantage of the rest above bolt 3.

The crimpy, reachy, pumpy and technical crux of this climb makes this one a challenging tick for anyone.


Location 

1st 5.12 L to R at this area, Just right of Low Voltage (5.10b)


Protection 

4 Bolts to anchor.

The crux on this route can be done in two ways. One, you can deadpoint out left from the mail slot and then easier climbing above. Or, you can climb straight up from the mail slot, using many crimps, to reach the ledge.

Kind of a one or two move wonder type of route. But the climbing below and above the crux was fun as hell. I went left from the main slot.
