The heady upper section of Electric Avenue


Classic! A very tall line that follows a beautiful crack up the imposing face of the Electric Avenue boulder. Stand start on some juggy sidepulls in the crack and work your way up until the crack ends. Make a tough transition (crux) into the adjacent crack to the right at about 15' and follow the sweet finger crack to the top...just don't blow it here!


On the obvious, tall main face of the Electric Avenue Boulder.


This is a pretty tall problem but the landing is flat and with enough pads and spotters it can be made relatively safe.

Fell topping out, it was very dirty at the top. Missed the set of 4 pads we had on the ground and broke the tibia in my right leg... Be careful when topping out. PG13

Very fun, beefy climbing through the first crack, but transitioning from the first crack to the second is rough. Couldn't break the beta this trip. Quality problem, felt harder than V4 to me for sure.
