Description

This description was updated in 2016. Wayne Crill, aka Dr. Thrill, broke a key hold in 2014 that changed the line substantially....for the better. The route now takes the clean dihedral directly above Over'ed Powerline instead of zig-zagging between the two dihedrals.

Super Natural starts on Mr. Natural, connects to Over'ed Powerline, and then continues straight up the left-leaning, left-facing corner above. (Over'ed Powerline steps right into some moderate 5.8 terrain.) It's a long pitch that eventually ends on the ledge right below Vertigo. A TR might be possible with an 80m rope from a gear anchor below the start of Vertigo.

All types of Eldo trickery are encountered. A bouldery start on Over'ed Powerline followed by technical stemming up the left-facing corner.

It is best done as one pitch from the ground. That way the belayer can see you for most of the route.

The bolt on Over'ed Powerline was replaced with Park permission in the Winter of 2010. The not-so-fixed nut after the bolt on Over'ed... was reset, but it probably won't hold a fall. There is another small fixed nut at the stemming crux.

Location

Start on Mr. Natural and keep going as described. Walk off or continue on Vertigo.

Protection

Standard Eldo rack plus extra small cams - double green to red Aliens. There is a key #1 Camalot, or better yet a large purple alien placement up high after the fixed nut in the corner. Bring some long slings for the occasional piece in the crack on the right. Save a few 1"-2" cams for an anchor at top near the base of Vertigo.
