Time to Power ascends the attractive East Ship face in between the Aggro gully and Ship Wreck gully. A wild & varied route unusual of Smith Rocks. Features everything from difficult slab climbing on flawless red stone to long moves through a pumping overhang. The crux is typical of most 5.12s at smith, near vert, on bad holds.
Other difficulties include waiting for an opportunity to climb the route, as the bottom portion of this route has become quite popular.
There's a somewhat difficult clip part way up the upper scoop. It's best just to skip it. It's best to approach this route as a single push from the ground. Be aware! A 70 meter rope will barely reach the ground.

My two cents as I get closer to sending. It's not too hard to clip all the bolts on the headwall, try climbing to the left of the tricky bolt. A long sling on the 3rd bolt of the 2nd pitch is really helpful for clipping. Finally it is easy to clip the anchors from a good pocket, but the climb finishes naturally on a jug up and right of the anchors, adding another few cruxy moves. Overall you get many .11 sections with one 12+ crux.
