I don't think this is Power Surge in the photo. I believe the route in the photo is actually Bone Yard. Can someone clear this up for me? Isn't Power surge to the left of the crack?

Perhaps the descriptions or photos are off then. Bone yard states :

"The first climb to the right of the main wall."

Looking to the right of the crack, this would be the first climb to the right of the main wall.

compare that with the description of happy hooker. anyway this is power surge
, if you don't agree, call it whatever you want. I agree that the main wall is hoot and the "traverse wall", (wall to the right of the main wall) is something else all together. That said, many of the descriptions for the Iowa climbs are either wrong or confusing.
