Pull the overhanging start to the left of arete and climb the engaging face above.


The next arete past Bullet the New Sky. Consider stick clipping the first bolt.


Bolted with anchors at the top.

This is a great route, but very sustained in my opinion for the 12a grade. If you decide to do the start to the left of the arete, there are a few loose blocks.

The right side start seemed like the safer and more obvious start. Though a different style than Bullet, their grades are on par with one another. 12b seems appropriate. The big move may be significantly harder if you're shorter.

Yeah, the right start (quick campus move) was pretty key for me.

Great route. tough start. 12a seems fine to me... if you know the beta. It's a bit hard to read and hard to reverse if you get of sequence.

This is one of those routes I wish I could rate 5 stars. It makes me want to go through my list of rated routes and subtract one star from almost all of them.

Man this thing is good. It kicked my ass on the onsight attempt but it went quickly once I figured out all of the beta. This might be my favorite route that I've done at The New. Feels sandbagged for 5.12a though.
