Mark Rolofson at the fourth bolt on Power Trip.

This is the second bolted line from the left end of the wall. (Hazardous Waste is on the far left). Probably the best 12a on the wall with good bolts and fun moves. A wild crux sequence gains the anchors.


5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Good jug haul with nice, powerful movement.

This is a fun powerful route and the knee bar at the crux make it fun and tricky.

Awesome jug haul, a little tricky at the top.

Given that there is only 40 feet of climbing, it is hard to imagine a better 12a sport route of this length. Great line!

Just like Anarchy in the UK, it's disappointing that someone added a bolt to this route.

If this line was three times as long, it would be Rifle! This comment isn't a down grade, it's a compliment, a legit climb. Great line, love the knee bar, a little of everything.

Really fun climbing...with a kneebar! Feels like Rifle, just short. Big, juggy movement after the kneebar to a fun but subtle crux at the top clipping the anchors!
