Start up Confines of Power, and then branch right halfway up. The crux begins as you negotiate a small roof. After this roof, look right to a pair of positive crimp/jugs, cop an ever-so-small rest, and thrutch through a 10-foot boulder problem consisting of heinous sidepulls and gastons. Clip the anchor from a glory jug.
The bolt that's been missing forever has been replaced, so you can safely climb this without worrying about lobbing 30 feet onto a shelf and breaking both ankles.
This is definitely among the best of Prospect's harder lines.
8ish bolts + 2 bolt anchor with chains and lowering biners.

This route has been updated, and the missing bolt at the crux has been replaced. Have fun!

Did some research regarding this route (thanks, Bernard Gillett), and found out that it was bolted by Lawrence Stuemke in the '90s. From what I can gather, a sizeable runout existed in the middle of the climb, and the route was never redpointed. It seems as though the runout remained until 6/28/13, when a bolt was added to the middle of the climb (thanks, Nathan Welton). Is anyone aware of a redpoint prior to the bolt addition on 6/28/13?
