DescriptionAnother fun Powerlinez crack (when it's dry).
Up the short chimney (or perhaps it's more fun (and a more useful warmup) to try the friction slab to its left) to a large rounded ledge, then up the narrow crack.
warning: The rock on and around this route has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2016. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
LocationBelow the obvious vertical crack above a short chimney in the right side of the main face of the Left side of the Jersey Vols sector - just left of a large tree.
--> see on these route photos ...
ProtectionTop-Roping: Straightforward to set up top anchor with static line. Hike+scramble around the right side to reach the top.
Protection for Trad leading: Crack takes smaller stoppers and cams.
