Description:

Located just as you walk out from between Fern Point and the main wall, this route moves left and climbs up the portion where the Boulder is at your back "and you can hit it if you're not careful" Move past a really reachy section, coming over the roof to a difficult move on face. One of the hardest route for the grade at the new.

4 out of 5 stars Alzheimer's flash

Been at least a decade since I'd been on it - forgot how good AND how devious it is!

4 out of 5 stars ugly duckling

perplexing/amazing climbing that never let's off. stay aware of the ribbon arete behind you. an energentic fall at the wrong time can land you on it. elegant bolting makes for exciting an exciting yet in-bounds experience. would be a tough, but rewarding onsight.

4 out of 5 stars Cool underappreciated route

This thing doesn't look all that great from the ground, but it is pretty nice. Very hard at the grade. Feels harder than almost every 11d I've done at the New. Probably no single move that's harder than 11c, but it demands constant attention for the entire climb. It is only about 60 feet long, but it climbs like it's 100 feet long. You wander around quite a bit, and try to decipher the cryptic beta. The bolting is sparse and adds an element of fear to the equation, but nothing too bad. Hard onsight. Luckily, I went to school on my partner's beta.

Classic New River route. It's a shame it doesn't see more traffic. I don't remember when I was on it last.
