Start by scrambling up to a ledge and climb the crack system to reach the first overhang. Pull the overhang and work up a flake to reach the next overhang. Traverse left under the overhang to reach a flared flake, pull up and gain a stance (crux). From here, follow positive holds all the way to the top to reach the final overhang. At the final overhang, move a bit left and climb straight up to reach a large protruding block and make the final clip. Figure out a way to get in position to clip the anchors (redpoint crux). Long runners on the anchors make this an easier send. You can also make the moves in the final overhang a bit easier by traversing way left and using great holds to reach the protruding block at the last bolt (this variation puts you in a bad fall position).
This route is located on the tiger striped wall just to the left of Scenic Adult, 5.11c.
9 bolts, shuts.

Great route. The only thing that detracts from this route is that you can move right at the 3rd bolt instead of left and completely bypass the crux. Great route even if you go right, but maybe 11a this way. Going right makes the most sense however...

Yeah I went right at the third bold and thought it was a bit soft for .11c at the New. No matter the grade or how you do that third bolt this climb is mega fun. Blew my onsight with the anchors at eye level.
