Description 

Best route on the wall, IMHO. Start on some smaller pockets just right of the large huecos of Power Station. Crux at third bolt as you pull left around a protruding rock. Joins (the better half of) Power Station after that.

Location 

Third route from left (on Power Wall), just right of Power Station.

Protection 

6 bolts + anchors. Well protected, good bolts, biner and an open shut at the top.

Super fun route. Some hidden holds make the crux at the 3rd bolt pretty easy. FYI, the 3rd bold is loose and the second to last bolt prior to the anchors is in a hollow sounding piece of rock. Be careful. If anyone has the motivation, it would be a good idea to replace these two bolts.
