New Horizon is everything a sport climb should be- beautiful, natural, aesthetic, and challenging. Slap the arete and hug the crack past fairly positive, yet widely spaced holds until it is no longer possible to span between the two features. At this point commit to the arete, lieback past the last bolt, and then traverse left to the anchors.
This is the obvious arete on the left side of the Riverwall. Scramble up a slightly loose, scary ramp to reach the base of this climb.
Five quickdraws plus one for the extremely large eye bolt at the anchor. A 50 meter rope will easily get you back down.
