|Redgarden - Below Lower Ramp
Super Natural starts on Mr. Natural, connects to Over'ed Powerline, and then continues straight up the left-leaning, left-facing corners above. (Over'ed Powerline steps right into some moderate 5.8 terrain.) It's a long pitch that eventually ends on the ledge right below Vertigo.
All types of Eldo trickery are encountered. The move on Over'ed Powerline is probably the crux, but there is a bunch of steep, 5.11, endurance climbing above.
It is best done as one pitch from the ground. That way the belayer can see you for most of the route.
The bolt on Over'ed Powerline was replaced with Park permission in the Winter of 2010. The not-so-fixed nut after the bolt on Over'ed was reset, but it probably won't hold a fall.
Start on Mr. Natural and keep going as described. Walk off or continue on Vertigo.
Standard Eldo rack plus extra small cams - double green to red Aliens. There is a key #1 Camalot placement up high as you move from one corner to the next. Save gear for anchor at top.

This is a classic pitch! Difficult onsight, sustained for Eldo, great way to link into Vertigo and beyond...much slater.
