Description 

Super fun route with some great moves!

Climb a clean crack with plenty of face holds (5.7ish) gear to 4". As the crack disappears clip a bolt on the face and move toward the roof above. A good cam between the 1st and 2nd bolt protects the crux. The crux is a series of off balance moves into the roof/arete section. Follow the bolts to the top.

Use the same anchor as "Shoop Dog". Rap from ring anchors.

Location 

This is a new bolted finish to "New Era". The second obvious crack lookers left of the big chimney. Start on a grassy ledge with a good drop below. Might continue this route below the ledge in the future.

Protection 

Small to medium stoppers, cams to 4". 5 bolts.

CONDITION REPORT 
Bring a wire brush and scrub off some lichen/moss, it could use a bit more cleaning.
