Climb the steep face to the bolt. Diagonal up slightly left and then slightly right. The wall is steeper than it appears. Good gear for most of the climb, but it gets a bit sparse near the top; but the climbing gets easier.


Start below a bolt, about 15 Ft. right of the first arete past the Biohazard corner.


1 bolt, mostly small gear around 1". Tri cams may be helpful. Bolted anchor.

Great climbing on perfect clean rock with bomber gear often well below your feet. Spicy, but shouldn't be dangerous with a good belay. Don't miss the perfect mono pocket. Apr 29, 2015

This has to be the funnest, finest, bestest 5.10B at the New. Exquisite climbing from start to finish. Don't forget to turn around and admire the view. May 31, 2016

I'm going to just go there and say that this is the best single pitch of 5.10 in the nation. May 14, 2018

Placed 3 or 4 TCUs, 2 teeny X4's, a red #1 C4, and a green .075. The small X4's can be backed up with tiny nuts. Run out at the top is over 5.8/9ish climbing and felt safe. Start is probably the crux. Sep 4, 2018
