New Blood is the project formerly known as Ain't Nothing in the Handren guide.

This route climbs the arete just left of Around the Corner.

Climb the unprotected 5.8 slab to a horizontal/crack with good gear. Pull the overlap and place a pink tricam in a slot in the flake. Make the crux moves up the thin seam and arete past two bolts. Finish at a bolt anchor on the ledge.

The start is often wet, but can be avoided by climbing the slab to the left past to bolts to a horizontal. Traverse right to the crack.

Thanks to Chris Magness for setting the line up.
I recleaned the route and gave it a few burns figuring out a sequence that worked for me. I went back the next day with Magness and sent!
