BETA PHOTO: White Lightning 12a/b.

Description 

Moderate sidepulls and underclings lead to a 15 foot long overhanging thin hands to ringlock splitter to a jug. Felt easy for the grade because it was so short.


Location 

Right below the power lines


Protection 

nothing larger than #1 camalot needed

Great line. I thought the overhanging nature, size (thin hands - my nemesis) and offset crack made this a challenging, although short route. Seemed like liebacking the crack worked better than ringlocks/jams. Can't wait to get back on this.
