Climb the steep face to the bolt. Diagonal up slightly left and then slightly right. The wall is steeper than it appears. Good gear for most of the climb, but it get's a bit sparse near the top but the climbing gets easier.


Start below a bolt, about 15 Ft. right of the first arete past the Biohazard corner.


1 bolt, mostly small gear around 1". Tri cams may be helpful.

One of the best at the grade! Standing below it first time, it's hard to believe there's actually gear on this thing.

Classic, classic, classic. This route seems to gone or forever or maybe that is because it took me forever to lead it. Thank goodness for the good gear and great rest spots! If you're not in the mood to lead it then set-up a TR off the top overlook and rap down. The anchors are just a foot or two below the lip. Be careful and tie in to something before leaning over the edge!

The exposure and movement are phenomenal! Don't miss this one! I won't spoil anything but I found many of the holds on this to be quite out of character for Endless wall...

This thing is amazing. Bomber gear, all incut holds, sporty runout at the top. Without a doubt, this is the best 5.10 at the NRG, no exceptions.

^^^Party Till Your Blind (around the arete to the left) is a competitor. It has many of the same characteristics and is perhaps a bit sportier.

Best single pitch of 5.10 I have ever been on.

Quite possibly the most fun I've had plugging gear at the New. The seemingly nondescript face has some of the wildest features at Endless, smallish gear when you need it, and amazing views of the river and surrounding climbs from the chains.

Do it, do it, do it!

Super fun route, one of the best I've ever done! GEAR BETA SPOILER ALERT: I was very glad to have a #0 c3...it was my first piece after the bolt and without it the start would have felt really scary. Although I guess a small sideways nut could work too.

From the ground it barely even looks like a route. The 'beta:' is just keep going up, it's all there and so good!! I thought this was physically easier than 4 sheets to the wind at Junkyard, but trickier gear and a bit scarier (some small gear, some moderate runouts on easier ground).

Reminded me of doubleissima at the Gunks. Similarly amazing steep face climbing with good gear.
