What's past and what's to come is strew'd with husks
And formless ruin of oblivion.

Another textbook example of New River face climbing, Oblivion scales an intimidating swath of coal-black rock, requiring a full bevy of the technical dark arts.  Sharing the first three bolts (and first haymaker crux) of Libertine, Oblivion trends left and up, past three more airy but reasonably spaced bolts.  At the sixth bolt, climb up and surmount a diagonal seam before traversing right to join the shared Libertine anchor.  Oblivion is a more sustained but less cruxy complement to its sister Libertine, and stands on its own as a worthwhile line--another great route on one of the best faces at the New.


Starts in the corridor between the wall and the huge boulder.  Belayers should stay on the ground, lest they get yanked off the boulder at the inevitable fall at the first crux.


6 bolts, anchors
