DescriptionFor years I thought this was Electric Lady Land. Thus the name at a rating of 8+! At 10b it's still no gimme! FA and original name are unknown. But we can't call everything "unknown". Likely this route continues to the top in another pitch though the rock quality looks worse.
Jam and layback a right facing corner up to a flared slot. Getting back into the layback at the slot is probably the crux but turning the bulge just above is also hard. Pass a fixed Hex and continue up the tight hands and stemming corner to a bolt and piton anchor on a sloping ledge. Please don't remove the Hex. It keeps the rope from jamming in the crack. Sweet jamming and clean rock. Tape your cuticles; it's sharp in there!
