Karl Zilles climbs Power Grid
A fun route for the grade. Start up some large juggy huecos to a small chimney. Exit left out of the chimney sooner than you think to a couple blind jugs around the corner. Continue up slabby face climbing to the anchors.
The left-most route on the wall (on Power Wall), traverse about 5 feet over the water pool to a small ledge. Although not required, there is a low first bolt that the belayer can tie into and set a hanging belay over the water. This allows the climber a bit more room to move around and makes belaying easier.
6 bolts + anchors. All good bolts, well protected. Open shuts at top. A little bit of wandering and being over the water make this route a bit more difficult to top rope. Its best to do it in pairs with a leader and a second.
