Description 

The Power Wall has a good concentration of shortish routes (we never moved our packs, an IC first); the best are in the 11+-5.12 range and require smaller gear. Warm up on a couple of easy hand/big hand cracks, check out the 140' 5.10 Flower Power dihedral, and then get ready to crank. Power Line (5.12) is the obvious 1" splitter, slightly overhanging; this may be TR'ed via a 5.11 stem/LB to its right. Thin cracks to the right are 5.12 and take a bunch of TCUs, or swing over from the warmup and toprope it. A widening corner on the left end, off a ledge, is 5.10.

Exposure is west. Bring two ropes to climb Flower Power (fun, worthwhile), or one if you just want to climb the shorter stuff.

Getting There 

Approach by parking as for Scarface and walking up an old road across (east) the drainage from Scarface; the Power Wall is the buttress at the back of the canyon. Head for a dirt cone with a cubical boulder and a rutted road on it.
