Description

Very technical and thin face climbing following a seam. The hardest moves are down low but it is possible to fall off of just about any move if you don't stay focused. Starts out less steep with delicate moves to gain the seam then some sidepull moves and onto knobs and edges. Surprisingly pumpy for what is more or less a vertical routes.

Location

Around the back side of Pywiack Dome is a steep wall with several climbs on it, mostly sport routes. Electric Africa is the second route from the left just after Rising Sun.

Protection

Bolts (4?) and a few stopper placements RP's to medium/large. I had to turn a stopper sideways since I did not carry one large enough.

Sustained, cool climbing. One of the best climbs in Tuolumne. Sep 23, 2013
