Description

Below New Wave is, as the name suggests, below the main New Wave wall. This is the short, generally steep section you come to when the trail splits left for Orange Crush and right for New Wave. It has a nice mix of routes for everyone from blocky 5.6 to steep 5.11s. The most classic being Debbie Does CPR 5.11a marked by its orange rock and 90 degree roof.

Update your guidebooks, Son of Sammy 5.8+ is bolted and open to the general quickdraw-toting public and is a really fun route.

Getting There

Follow same approach trail for Orange Crush and The New Wave. It is the first wall you come to before heading left to Orange Crush and right to The New Wave. The steep overhang on the left end is Bullwinkle's Crater (5.11b).
