Description [Suggest Change]

The first pitch to Time To Power is only mentioned in Watt's book as something where "you have to plow through an ugly approach pitch to get to the real [5.12c] climbing". Occasional ascents during the last decade on the sparsely placed bolts has improved this pitch to "fun for some" status.
The standard, straight-up start to reach the high on the wall first bolt can be made a bit easier by using a modest ramp system just uphill and to the right of the direct start. The somewhat tricky crux is protected by the second bolt.

Location [Suggest Change]

Just uphill from Time To Shower and Shipwreck.

Protection [Suggest Change]

4 bolts on first pitch. Two bolt anchor (could/should be improved if pitch gets more traffic).
