BETA PHOTO: Power to Waste, on the left side of the Lotta Ball...
The left side of the Lotta Balls Wall is dominated by a huge fin of rock. This route climbs straight up the fin to a bolted rappel station beneath the jutting overhang. A single rope is sufficient for the rappel if you go down the east-facing wall (instead of straight down the route). The route starts with easy face climbing on excellent rock. When you reach the corner halfway up, the rock quality begins to decline, and care is needed as you approach the belay.
6 bolts, small cams

Description is accurate, rock is ok at the top, just needs more activity to clean off the looser stuff.
I thought the climbing was really enjoyable.
Just take gear to protect between the bolts and you won't be worrying about the slightly flaky nature of the rock.
How about a second pitch ?
Sure looks like there should be stellar climbing up that nose out the left side of the belay.
