Nice to have a few new routes at New Jack. These routes are still shedding some holds for now, but should clean up nicely in time. My Bloody Valentine was our group's favorite, though we thought 5.9 was a more accurate rating.

There is a unfinished route in the middle, between Victoria's Secret and Cupid's Fever. I think it goes at 5.10a or so. There's 3 bolts for the route, and bolt 1 is missing.
It can be a good mxied route, I climbed it yesterday. Some trad gear to follow up the crack that appears pretty quick. Few good hand jams and few toe jams and you are pretty much done.
It's probably safer to TR this for most folks.
