Mid-route on Power.

Description 

This route deserves classic status for a variety of reasons: the climbing is super fun, long, and varied; and it is probably the most traveled line at the Tor. While the only "warm-up" available amongst a slew of hard lines, Power still packs a pumpy punch, and many a proud climber has come, seen, and failed on this sandbagged 5.11d. Cruxes come at the second and last bolt.

Location 

Begins on a prominent crimp-rail. Power is situated right in front of the "hanging gardens" terrace, which is right about at the center of the crag.

Protection 

Fixed draws.

I don't really get why people say this route is sandbagged 11d...

You have a point, Micah. Maybe it's just merely 11d, and everything else these days is uprated to assuage egos.
