BETA PHOTO: Ascending the multi-tiers to big roof finish!

Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>


An extension to Crescendo that includes the big roof above.

Climb Crescendo to within a few feet of the anchor, then veer right through the overhangs on jugs to another anchor.


Same as Crescendo, at the far right side of the Shady Lady alcove, just left of a large fallen block.


10 bolts + 2-bolt anchor. 60M rope handy (Not sure if it's required to lower off. We had one, so I had no problem).

I was thoroughly unimpressed with the rock quality. Really fun moves, but lots of broken / hollow / rotten rock. That took away most of the fun for me.

Agreeing with Matt. Climbing into the choss line did not feel safe. Side note: 2 of the bolts were't torqued down but I tried tightening them down with my nut tool.

I agree with the previous two comments, the top of this is one big bolted pile of choss. With all the other quality rock at the New, I have no idea why someone bothered to bolt this line.
