Excellent rock. First 3 pitches are 160' long. Good newer bolts. The first pitch is excellent 10d face, a little runout but bolts are generally where you need them. Route becomes much more featured after the first pitch. Second pitch has only 4 bolts with no other pro and is mostly 5.5 with a couple 5.9 moves high up, protected by a bolt. 3rd pitch is 5.6 max and no bolts but some gear placements. You can rapel the route from the top of pitch 3 with 2, 50m ropes. Pitch 4 and 5 are max 5.5 with no belay anchors and no bolts but some trad pro placements.

5 out of 5 stars Esto Power ...

This is one of the best routes on power dome. Super fun. I've done it 3 or 4 times now, and look forward to doing again one of these days.

5 out of 5 stars Fantastic climb up Power dome!!!!

First pitch has the crux move, after that climbing becomes easier. Make sure you bring along some Camp tri-cams (for the solution pockets) and a 2.5 to 3" cam for the third pitch, the runout can be very far and that cam will be your best friend ;-))
