Description 

Slab/arete route with varied climbing enjoyable for the taller climber with some considerable confidence pulling hard slab moves. Also, fingers/tnedons of steel would be helpful.

The crux move is moving left off of a terrible mono divot with a very bad foot match.


This is a great climb for the 5.12 experienced climber to enjoy!


Location 

Arete to right of Easily Flakey.
Arete right of Strecth Armstrong.


Protection 

6 bolts to anchors.

A blue TCU or alien makes you feel better between the last two bolts.

As of 11/09, there are 6 bolts (no pin as indicated in the Cater Guide, 3rd edition. Also, a yellow or green alien protects the section between bolts 5 and 6. Also, a black alien fits perfectly in the obvious slot before the mantle up to the shuts. Awesome line!

This is probably one of my favorite climbs at the New. Technical, slabby and some really cool moves.
