The roof


Pull the low roof on positive holds and then trend up the slightly slabby face via technical movement to a rest at two-thirds height. Step left to a corner and rail below the roof. Monkey out the roof and trend up the slightly overhanging headwall to a bolted anchor. Classic!


After passing the Long Wall, the best of the next group of climbs (the Lichen Wall) is Satisfaction Guaranteed, an obvious face climb leading up to a large roof.


8 bolts to bolted anchor.

One of the best climbs I've been on so far at the New. Powerful, boulder-y start to a broken finger crack (no jamming necessary) to some thin slab, to a really powerful roof move, then just some slabby/slopey stuff at the top.

Clip from one of the decent ledges on the rail below the roof, get back as much energy as possible, pull the roof, get up to the decent jug above it and make sure you don't blow the clip (it would blow). Holds get continuously better as you pull above the bulge after this clip (the diagonal finger cracky thing blows).

If you have the chance, GET ON THIS ROUTE.
