Belaying Talia on Powder Puff Girls

New Access Difficulties MORE INFO >>>

Description 

An ok warm-up traversing right over some slab to a small headwall. Pull that for a big ledge shared by (judging by the scat) an owl. At this point the route meets up with Power Ranger and Electric eye. Continue up clipping one more bolt and find the anchors.

Location 

Fifth route from left (on Power Wall), first after the blank section. An obvious, slab start.

Protection 

4 bolts + anchor. Well protected. Closed shut and a chain link at top.

Real fun route, great movement traversing up and right to the crux headwall. Highly recommended. Like everything at Century Lake this one is well-bolted.

Small foothold broke off yesterday before the bolts. Does not affect quality/grade of the climb.
