Start up New River Gunks, but instead of heading right by the first little roof go straight up. This route, like Team Jesus, is a one move wonder and you pull the crux right at your gear.


Around the corner from Junk Yard Dog (JYD) and right of Team Jesus on the big slab.


Mostly gear smaller than .5, but some bigger cams up to 3" are helpful. Shared bolted anchor with New River Gunks.
