|The New River Wall
|Temporary closures near Fiscal Cliff: May-July 2014 MORE INFO >>>|
This route is on a small rock along the approach to New River Wall, namely the short (~45 foot) rock just above the river after the Tyrolean just prior to New River Wall. Ascends the left side of the rock. The first few moves are very juggy and fun, then attacks the tricky crux in the crack before attaining good underclings at a small overlap. Pull above this to a large corner , clip and make a couple more juggy moves left to the chains. Fun but short (1.5 stars). Decent route to get the blood flowing a little before hopping on Sonic Youth.
4 or 5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Sorry but calling this route 11- is either ego-beta or cluelessness. 11+ might be a bit of an overstatement, although not much. High quality except for the flesh-eating thumbs-down jam at the crux.
