Otherwise known as Clark Shelk's - Tick Ranch.
There was a topo up on his website revolutionclimbing.com, its gone now. It was a popular bouldering area at one point, and there is a .12 something sport line that watt's established thats apparently stellar and historic. There is at least 6 bolted lines here, maybe a few more.
If anyone wants the Shelk topo he put up and thats now down - email me

|This area is totally separate from the Tick Ranch. It is a few miles down the dirt roads. Tick ranch is just off FS 4606 (at the bridge) while the powerlines are off of FS 4609.|

I apologize CritConrad. I stand corrected. Being that the two bouldering areas, and Shevlin Park are in the same general vicinity I was under the impression that more folks know the area as "Tick Ranch", being the more "historic" name going all the way back to the 90's and all. Its what came to mind for me when I first saw "power lines" posted here.
Having the 4606 vs 4609 clarification will probably help those finding power lines versus "tick ranch".

|the historic route is called"spellbinder". It is located above the bridge. Park at the bridge and walk up the switchbacks. This place is now called "The Super Unknown ". Lots of bouldery and short 5.ll and .12 routes with just enough bolts to keep you safe. Spellbinder starts next to the trail head sign.It starts with a fixed pin and goes up the right facing corner which is left of a bolt line. It leaves the corner and goes out a killer hand crack to the left. Anchors in this area are bolts but not always set up with rap rings or chains. I though Ed Barry did the FA.Road is closed from Dec.1st to April 1st.|
