Leftmost route on front (south) face of Live Wire. Height dependent start (cheater stones) leads to easier climbing made harder by fear of holds breaking off in your hands. Pulls through a roof to a headwall with more suspect rock. Finishes over another roof with a slopey, insecure move.

1 out of 5 stars Mediocre

Unmemorable route with suspect rock. Didn't do any other route at this crag, but nothing was begging to be climbed. Absolutely, not worth the short trek to get to Live Wire. Seemed quite a bit easier than 12a.
