A striking formation near the north entrance of the Reserve, Electric Avenue is somewhat of a test piece area with stout climbing and spacious protection. Three traditional lines exist, including the crag's showstopper and namesake. The remainder of the lines are bold, solid, sport routes.
When entering the City of Rocks from Almo, hang a right at the fork in the road.
