This is a variation on Le Nouveau Riche that involves trad gear and skipping the first bolt. It is only for those who greatly dislike falling and have climbed here a bit but don't mind a dolt point. It's been done a while back, but yesterday's warm sun invited another lap.

Start as for Le Nouveau Riche. A yellow C3 fits in the top of the crack a few feet below the bolt. Slab up. You may get a red Alien in the crack before the jugs above the unclipped bolt...if you don't, it'll be a decent runout. Head up along a crack left of the 2nd & 3rd bolts of Le Nouveau Riche on moderate terrain. Finish at the 2 bolt anchor.

This can also be toproped for an easier version of Le Nouveau Riche.


This starts as for Le Nouveau Riche but goes left of the 2nd & 3rd bolts.


A rack to a #0.5 Camalot worked. Specifically - green C3, green Alien, yellow C3, red Alien, blue Alien, small wire, #0.5 Camalot.
