Electric Lightning climbs up the left side of the ...


A really nice and moderate trad. line on the very left side of the Best Crack Wall.

Starts in a crack system then moves onto the face and arete.


The leftmost side of the wall. Aim for a hand crack that is ten feet or so up.

Fun line that protects very well. Somewhat of a chimney where the hand crack starts much higher than 10 feet, but you can protect early with a small cam (blue Alien). It's a good warm-up for Best Crack. Top out on the right hand crack to walk to easy terrain to the chains for Best Crack.
