Start at the right side of New Beginnings Wall below a small left facing corner. Climb up to the corner and follow it over the hollow flake to another small roof. Ascend this with some slopping holds and continue up on easier climbing. At the cave entrance move up and left to the Lucius anchors. The single bolt on the right side slab in the cave is used if you are continuing up into White Washed.


Farthest route to the right on New Beginnings Wall. It has black hangers and starts about 15 feet right of Lucius.


8 QD's, the anchor is fixed and has a steel lowering biner

This is an enjoyable route at the 5.9/5.10 grade. Nice features and good holds make for a fun moderate. It is about the same difficulty as it's neighbore Lucius, perhaps a touch easier.
