|This felt hard in the grade, but I haven't climbed too many 5.9's at the New. The crux was about half way up after the wide section, if I remember correctly - there is a bit of a bulge with tight hands. The rest is solid hands. Good pro throughout.|

|As straight forward as it gets! Hand Jam your all the way to the top! At the time I was pretty new at crack climbing so it was a little on the stiff side for me, but with enough determination made it to the top! Eats up medium size gear, bring doubles of .75-2's if you want to stitch it up. Lay backing works, but its quite a work out if you decide to climb it that way.|

It seemed to be one of the strangest hand jams I've encountered.
It felt like you hand jam one way, then you get footholds another way. Felt screwy.
Good climb anyways. Not bad for setting up top rope either, just reach over the edge. Done.

|This thing looks SO straightforward but it climbs somewhat awkward and a bit pumpy for the grade. Killer jams though, for sure.|
