Girls Prefer Batteries
Ellen Moran, longing for Joe's battery powered drill
Photo by Joe Cote
Directions:  Start 20 feet left of Four Holes.
Description: The first bolt was placed free on the lead and the others on top rope. The bolts were placed by hand, hence the tongue-in-cheek reference to the girls desiring a battery-powered drill.
    Pitch 1: Climb the smooth slab (crux) to a bolt. Continue straight up just right of a faint seam to the large, deep pothole on Cover Girl (bolt). Angle slightly right and up the headwall to a comfortable 2 bolt belay. (100) 5.5

    Pitch 2: Trend slightly right up a clean streak, past a left facing flake (optional cam placement) to the top.

Gear: draws
Descent: You can rappel twice with one 60 meter rope or to the bottom with 2 ropes.
History:  July 17,2004 - Jean Goldsborough, Ellen Moran, Carol Orth
