Access Issue: PRIVATELY OWNED PROPERTY
This cliff line is on private property. If there are "NO TRESPASSING" signs up, and you choose to climb there, that's a personal choice. Attempts have been made to contact the landowner by the local climbing organization, but thus far, there has been no progress.
Start is the same as Potential Energy. At the first bolt, head up and left to reach a flake. Careful on the flake, there's a loose block there. From here, climb straight up to reach a set of amazingly good horizontal pockets below a blank section of face. Figure out a way to reach the next positive hold (crux). From here it's fairly easy going to the top, traverse right to reach the anchors above Potential Energy.
This is the first route of the Contact Zone Area proper that you will encounter as you walk in on the trail. It's the left line of bolts through the center of the clean white face, just to the left of the Potential Energy arete.
5 bolts, shuts(shared with Potential Energy).
