Powering up Power Station.

New Access Difficulties MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Another fun moderate. Somewhat pumpy jug-haul, lessened considerably by the availability of many good rests on the dihedral. Crux at the top: when you see two bolts and two anchors within 5 feet of each other, you know youÂ’re there.

Location 

Second route from the left (on Power Wall), just before the pool of water. An obvious climb up a small dihedral littered with huge huecos.

Protection 

5 bolts + anchors. Plenty of good bolts to a biner and an open shut at the top. A bit of loose rock at the top.

Super fun route. I'd have a buddy TR clean the route instead of taking the draws off while being lowered because the anchors are to the right and its a kind of a mission.

Position yourself wisely for the third blot clip. I found it tricky had to do an around the head twist maneuver wasn't pretty

Great route, but the second to last bolt prior to the anchors is sunk in a hollow sounding piece of rock. I would not want to fall on it. Also, there are a number of holds just before the anchors that sound hollow as well and may come off. Climb carefully!
