  • Description 

    The 1st pitch of New Test Of Men can be linked with the 2nd pitch Road To Emmaus, as one pitch. It makes for a pretty fun, long pitch and a good warm up for the crag.

    A couple of fingery mid 5.11 moves start the route, but then you get plenty of big holds for the rest of the way. The green, double overhang at the top is easy 5.11 and very, very fun.

    Don't clip the belay bolts as you go by the anchor at the top of the 1st pitch. Take 16 draws.

    A 70m rope will lower to the ground from the top. I think a 60m might work for the lower, too, but I haven't tried it.

    Protection 

    14 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

    Oh, this is a very fun climb, esp. the overhanging jug bit and the chunky top section, too. Would be a great warm-up, except for the first 2 strenuous, sketchy clips.

    Super fun! A 60m is good for rappel from the top anchor, with enough left over that I'd guess lowering would work too.
