Beautiful and sustained, with multiple cruxes.

This is a pretty sweet pitch with some nice finger lockin'. Climbed this one last weekend at the new river rendezvous and would also recommend climbing the spiderwand route to the left.

I could climb this all day. Spectacular locks, great moves, and a fun cruiser top.

This is one of the best routes at The New. You could throw your rack of nuts at the wall and protect the entire climbs. I think I placed 2 cams, both finger size, both near the ground.
