1st piece is a little high after low crimpy moves, gain a crack system and fun moves until the crux hits when tranfering into corner after resting below roof. continue to anchors
There was a bolt right where you came out of the face and onto the corner (WHY??) it has been removed. Please, don't place another bolt here, there is great gear all around.
Orginally rated 5.7
Route that is south side of trash compactor roof, obvious splitter to corner
takes great gear, standard rack

This route is a must do! My first climb ever at the New and I was blown away by the quality of the rock. I've climbed a lot more in the area since and this is still one of my favorites. It doesn't look possible for this to be 5.9 from the ground but then its all there! A good piece of pro in the lower horizontal is available before the finger crack and the dihedral is really techy and fun! This route has it all!
