Description 

On any given bluebird day, Jolt is bound to be free of climbers and in need of some well-deserved attention.

Compared to its neighbors, Jolt is the black sheep of the posse--it is NOT a crack climb. On the contrary, successfully climbing this pariah depends mostly on your ability to sprint up sharp/positive edges on a vertical face through a steep AND crimpy crux right before the topout.

Punctuated with three well-placed bolts and few small cams, Jolt is a great--and fun--alternative to the cracks surrounding it.


Location 

10 feet to the left of Double Vee on the clean face.


Protection 

A small brass nut (or a good spot!) to protect the bouldery beginning, 3 bolts, and 2 or 3 small Camalots.

A very overlooked route with nice moves and pro exactly where you need it.
