T working his way through the bolted section.


This route shares the anchors with Short Circuit to its left. The crux is the diagonal starting crack which is some what committing due to the poor feet. Follow a handful bolts and gear placements to chain anchors.

nice route, initially not very well protected as you make your first move through the crack and off of the ledge. Be careful with placement, I took a nice deck fall here after blowing a nut.

Excellent! So much better than Live Wire. Main crux is at the beginning on bad jams, but you can throw a couple nuts and a cam in to protect. Redpoint crux is on sandy slopers up top. Best route on the wall.
