A decent problem with a frightening topout. Stand start on the arete on some good holds with a tree conveniently placed directly behind you. Make a long move to a good pocket and cruise up on some massive sculpted jugs. Make use of a good undercling and pocket on the arete and commit to the sloping, often dirty topout. Degrading beached-whale moves may be involved. Try not to fall, it won't be pretty considering the tree in the landing zone. I thought the entire V2 grade was in the topout. If you want to bail, downclimbing from the top is very easy.
Arete to the left of Electric Avenue.
The tree growing behind the arete hinders the perfect pad placement, so either use a smaller pad or get creative...or just don't fall.
