Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Crux for me was getting to the first bolt. Pick your evil - go up left with technical balancy moves or right with bouldery moves. I like the left. The slab climbing above has good edges, perhaps more so than the 10a beside because it doesn't get climbed nearly as much.

Location 

To the right of High Boltage Line.

Protection 

3 bolts, bring small cams for the top (book says to 1.5"). Bolted anchor.

If you come from the right side you're only 3 or 4 feet off the ground before you can grab a jug and pull easily up to the first bolt. From the left you're probably 6 feet off the ground on some technical moves, so that way might justify a PG13 rating. Definitely not an 'R' in either direction.
