Description

A nice climb on great rock. Power Pusher is a 2 pitch climb to reach the ridge.

Pitch 1 - 5.7
Follow a left facing corner up about 50 feet. Then traverse right into a right facing corner and go up. Belay from a big sloping ledge below a right facing corner crack.

Pitch 2 - 5.9
Jam up a stellar hand and fist crack to the ridge line. You should reach the ridge right at the belay between pitches 2 and 3 of Proboscis (note: no belay bolts).

Technically this is the end of the route, however there is no way to rap down from here. So climb the 3rd pitch of Proboscis. Or you could (although I don't recommend it because of being dirty) walk around on ledges to the east side and climb Evening Stroll 5.8.

To descend there are bolts to rappel from at the top of Owl Dihedral. Don't miss the 2nd set of bolts in the middle of the face between pitches 1 and 2 of Owl Dihedral if you only have a single 60m rope.

Location

This route starts 150 feet north of Proboscis. Look for a tree at the base of a nice left facing corner.

Protection

Gear to 3 inches. There are no bolted belay stations.
