Generator Crack Area. In April 1971, Jerry Coe and I explored a hitherto hidden small 200-foot cliff band directly above the generator building of Generator Crack infamy. This cliff, characterized by knobs, has thus far yielded four fine short routes: The Electric Gully, Chimney for Two, Chickie Pie, and New Diversions (Claude Wreford-Brown also in ascent party). The latter two are exceptionally fine. All are in the F8 range.
