This is another route that is best avoided by "sane" people.

Ten feet of steep face climbing up a thin white dike leads to a ledge and a lonely bolt. Steep positive climbing above leads to progressively better holds.


This is the one bolt route just left of Free Electric. Start at a thin white vertical quartz vein. Simu-rap off the top, 5th class down climb the chimney or rap off west on some old slings. No fixed anchors.


One good 3/8" bolt above the crux, no protection above on easier but still hard climbing. A 2" cam for directional at the top. Belay south at a wedged block in the chimney.
