4 out of 5 stars .

This was the first climb I did at The New. I originally seconded it after Tim and went back later and lead it. I don't have a date on the Red Point.

5 out of 5 stars Fall in NRG is awesome!

We had great fun on Fool Effect. A nice thoughtful climb. The fall colors were spectacular. The place magical. And it was a full moon, lunar rays were at work.
