Climbing trad in a sea of bolts. This rig is amazing and worth humping the rack down there.
Locate the splitter crack at the base of the "First Steps"boulder. Cruxy low and near the top.


Standard NRG trad rack. There are definitely spots for a red and gold camalot, then probably two of everything from 00 tcu to .5 camalot. Nuts.  Bolt anchor at the top.

Guidebook recommends not bringing anything larger than a 0.75, but unless you're very comfortable at the grade you'll probably want up to #2. Doubles 0.4 - 0.75 would also be appreciated. May 26, 2015

This thing is pure fun. Awesome moves that a protect by bomber smallish gear. Once you are through one crux, it sets you up for another different type of crux. Awesome View at the Top of the Cliff is your Reward for hanging on. Jul 27, 2015

What a great climb. Fantastic movement. Burly up top, the pump clock ticks leading or following. Seemed very well protected. Slick rock looks intimidating, but, I can assure you it doesn't play in the climbing. May 31, 2016
Probably my favorite climb in the New, so far. May 21, 2017

The guidebook says there are no anchors, but as of Spring 2018 there are bolted anchors at the top of this route. May 13, 2018

Yup, anchors were added a couple years ago. It's just too good of a climb not to have top bolts, and we need to protect the clifftops and trees. May 14, 2018
