Hardcore! Does the new start start left of Shipwrecked, join it for a couple bolts and then move right into Cast Away?

Yes Jason. The start (I think he's going to call it Chips Ahoy) is left of Shipwrecked and climbs difficult (5.13) moves through the steep start to the face which leads to the easier middle part of Shipwrecked. He then followed the Cast Away exit which he said became extra pumpy (Probably harder than .13a). He sent the whole route but wasn't going to post the start till he could pry some loose stuff from the bottom (might still get harder!)
