Next Try is another excellent moderate on the Meat Wall, climbing excellent rock with powerful moves. This probably isn't the best warm up on the wall, as many of the moves are relatively burly, and the difficulties commence almost immediately.

Begin with great pockets up a nice blue and orange section of rock, to the first crux just past the 2nd bolt. Classic Rifle sidepulls & underclings work past this first bulge, to a desparate move past an insecure sloper. A great shake gives way to some fun techy climbing with long reaches between good holds. A final lengthy undercling move leads to the anchor.


Next Try is the second route to the right of Cardinal Sin on the right half of the Meat Wall. Cardinal sin has fixed wire quickdraws with green rubber sleeves. Immediately rifht of Cardinal Sin is Czech Mate, which features a fixed chain on the second bolt. The next route right, through the trees is Next Try.


~8 bolts to 2 BA that currently has fixed biners.

There is currently a paper wasp nest ~ 10 feet to the right of the 5th bolt. They didn't seem to be a problem, but you never know.

The large block that you must pull and stand on near 4th bold sounds hollow and has a crack all around it. Just a heads up. Fun route!
