Lower Part of Mrs. Field's Follies
This is a really fun route with a crack, some face, and an overhang on really nice rock.
Start as for Geisha Girl by climbing the wide crack, then straight up to the intimidating roof (easier than it looks). Surmount the roof to the anchors.
Same as Geisha Girl, at a wide crack just right of the starting block of Bobby D's Bunny
10 bolts + 2-bolt anchor. 60M rope.
Preparing to clip before tackling roof.

Bring a #4 to protect the wide crack or a long stick clip. First bolt is 20-25 feet of the ground.

Great route, one of the tallest moderates at the New. Roof looks harder than it is, and just under it offers a big ledge to take a rest, turn around and catch a nice view. Highball start was a bit more than I was willing to lead (I had no gear to protect the crack). First bolt is too high to stick clip with even a 12' stick.

I found an optional direct start if you want to avoid (or suck at) crack climbing. there was already chalk on a few holds so it should be obvious where to start
