Description

A fun problem that be climbed with long power moves or with short beta intensive trickery.

Start on a neat sloper/knob thing poking out of the rock that has a good ridge in it and a sloper to the right of this. Follow the lip to the left by slapping along slopers and some good crimps until you reach the little peak of the lip. From here, find the holds you wanna use and pull a tough mantle. Run up to the top.

Here's a video of the problem:

Location

This is to the right of Zap. If you're looking at Ride The Lightning, walk right around the boulder until you see a almost perpetually wet part of the crack. There is a boulder to your right. You should be looking at Pikachu from this point.

Protection

2 pads and a spotter to move one. 3 pads is better.

This problem actually climbs really, really well. I think it's better and harder than its neighbor, Zap. We're pretty sure it's an FA because people said they've never seen it clean and some holds broke off from simply brushing, so they probably wouldn't have been there if the line had been done before. All of the holds on this line are super solid and aren't going anywhere. The feet are all solid too. Apr 25, 2016

Its a fun line and I'm sorry to say, but not a FA. I used to do that line even with the moss because it always felt easier than Zap to me. I know it was climbed well before me as well. A good ammount of the rocks in Boulder Natural and Devils Den in particular can get overgrown in under a year if not climbed on consistently. That being said, thanks for cleaning it! May 2, 2016

That's okay, thanks for the info though Alec! Are you sure it's this same line though, one of the holds broke from simply brushing it so I feel like maybe the finish you used to do was different? Also don't thank me for cleaning it, thank Brad haha! May 2, 2016

Definitely looks like a few new edges in the video, especially that right hand used to press out the top. It was 95% slopers last I can remember doing it, which was years ago, with a slopey mantle to finish. Looks more enjoyable now. May 2, 2016
