Contrived climbing through the first few bolts lead to a distinct crux then slightly easier climbing. Finishes with some dirty lower angle moves.

Not sure what to think about this one. I could only get it on TR, but I don't remember having any fun doing it. The holds force the climber into some very awkward and committing moves which gets them wondering why they don't just finish the unclimbed route to the right instead. Not really worth spending too much time on.

The right is a very slopey, bulging route that looks significantly more promising than Low Voltage should someone out for the time and effort to develop it. Beers to whomever bolts it! May 10, 2016

This route is about as lame as it gets right now. Super contrived, a forced V1 crux and then more contrived climbing. There's been talk of rebolting it to make it a 5.10- route, which would follow the actual line that gets climbed, rather than squeezing a forced line in. If anyone has any input, comment below. The original FA is unknown at this time. Jul 24, 2015
