Description:

Super fun climb! Gets one star in the guidebook, but I thought it deserved two or maybe three. Lots of techniques needed, from smearing to laybacking. Last bolt is about a foot below the anchors.

4 out of 5 stars Great 5.7!

Picked it as a warm up run, and ended up being a really good challenge.

3 out of 5 stars Smoooooth.

Great warm-up! Fun to start on because unlike most of the rock around it, New Purchase bosts some smooth rock. My buddy and I decided to always test our "new purchases" out on this route. Tested his new shoes on it most recently!
