A beautiful new arete climb between Serpentine and Surf Boy and the Shrimp. I would give this route four stars but not sure that it has been around long enough to earn the "classic" rating. Bolts begin closely spaced through the tenuous bottom moves (you will appreciate this, trust me!), than spread out as you get to the top. Heel hooking helps through the arete section, then a big move up higher is the crux, and easier moves to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in NM
