New Release is an eliminate that follows the bolt line of Blockbuster (11a), but avoids the arete in favor of a series of small, sharp pockets. The crux comes early but the route is relatively sustained for the length. Though it is an eliminate, the line feels natural, and is good fun and worth doing if you're in the area.


Stumbling blocks area, around the corner left of Letterbox, or around and right from Chopping Block. Find Blockbuster and you're there.


5 bolts to anchor (crusty carabiner and open shut).

Tough, short route but easily done after a few attempts.
