Market Meltdown is located on the left side of the cliff just left of white dyke. Climb up a short crack and follow a line of bolts up a steep wall. Excellent face moves lead to a stance below a roof. Crank over the roof and dance your way to the anchor. Excellent climbing on good stone.


Nine bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

This route is a fine introduction to climbing at the New Economy Cliff. Like many things on this wall it is composed of sections of good climbing separated by stances that offer near complete rest. We found good rock, good protection (with one caveat), and interesting climbing. The final bulging head wall is taken on terrific jugs. Two stars for the overall quality. Caveat: I hope that my sporting Bob at least ten years allows me the following quip. Drop the welded cold shuts at the anchors, please. Having replaced 27 of such anchors in the last two years, I can assert that they do not have adequate longevity.

Bob, the route just left of Market Meltdown (5.12b or so) was also terrific. It seemed fairly casual to a stance below the head wall and this was followed by a few big power moves to gain the crack leading up to the anchor. Great job, again.
