Nobody F's with Da Jesus!

Description 

Pitch 1: Climb the low angle slab and aim for the wide dihedral. Good but strange gear protects this awkward corner. Chains allow for an escape after this pitch or continue on to the summit. 5.10, 100 feet.
Pitch 2: Meander up the technical slab staying right of the big corner system for about 50 feet. Place gear and cut left to escape up and over the corner. You can make an anchor here and bring your partner up or just gun another 100+ feet of easy 5th class to the summit.

Getting down:
1. The summit ridge offers cool 'fingers' of solid rock that can be slung. Double rope rap to chains then rap to the ground.
2. Traverse the ridge line to the north and find a bolted rap station on the back of the highest feature. 3 raps of less than 100 feet each take you to the ground.
3. Walk off the top back toward the power plant.

Location 

On the Bowling Ball Wall behind and up hill from the Cellular Service Wall. This route begins 30 or 40 feet right of the "Bowling Ball".

Protection 

Standard trad rack
