A nice warmup that builds a little pump by the time you clip the anchors.


Leftmost route on the lower (Crackin' the Cherry) wall.


Bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Anyone know what the route, or beginning of a route, is just left of Power Trip? There are four bolts down low and then nothing. Is it gear from there? Connect with Power Trip? Or, an unfinished line?

I get the impression this thing gets confused often with Red Chili, which is the longer (and better) line about 50' or so to the right on nice gray rock. Power Trip is on an isolated buttress on the far left side of the first band. It is short (3 bolts) and vertical and offers some cool moves up big edges and brown blocky bands. The rock isn't the greatest, but the climbing is worthwhile.
I believe the route you're asking about Michael is a line called "Log Jammin", which is immediately left of Red Chili. Haven't been on it, so don't know what it's about, but it always looked kinda silly...

I climbed the route left of Power Trip a couple days ago. It's bolts past a right facing dihedral and then easy climbing to a pod. Place gear in the pod and climb straight out the top until one bolt on Power Trip and then the anchors. An okay climb. Felt about 5.9 to me.
