According to the guidebook this is the Right variation of The Scene is Not For Sale. (other route that is called Chossfire on here is not a route) It shares the same bouldery start as The Scene Is Not For Sale then goes right at the 4th bolt. So if you're looking at the rock it goes (from left to right) Double Knee Bar Ranch, Crossfire, The Scene is not for Sale, SPLIT THE SCENE, then Change of Scene The book calls it 12a but that may be a little soft since it's definitely easier than Crossfire. It's long, pumpy, and super fun.

Descent Options:

Rap the route with one 60m rope.

4 out of 5 stars my favorite climb at NJC

This is probably an 11d, but even so I've gotten it before but missed the clean ascent this time. Sustained all the way and super fun

5 out of 5 stars finally

Worked this quite a bit to get it clean. Finally got it. This is honestly my favorite climb in New Jack. Pretty soft 12a though. Probably 11c/d.
