New Test Of Men

This is the second to last route on the far right (uphill) on the N Face.
P1. Climb past a bouldery 5.11 start followed by a juggy 10- corner. 6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor at a slabby ledge.
P2. Move up left through a bulge and the 11c/d crux, there is a good rest before the remaining 5.11 to the top. 8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
I managed to lead this as one pitch but had a lot of rope drag at the top. 70m rope required to lower to the ground.
Sport route with bolts.

2.5 stars. The boulder problem start is much harder than anything on the 2nd pitch, definitely harder than 5.11. 2nd pitch is quite good, but expect rope drag if using standard length draws. There is one bolt that is too far to the left around a sharp arete that really adds to the rope drag.

No warm up and I still thought the lower boulder problem was no harder than 5.11 but I'm a strong crimper.
