Description 

This less-traveled route is fantastic. Stick clip the high first bolt and choose either the easier flake start or the crimpy direct start added by Doug Reed in '88. Climb through a couple of desperate reaches (maybe a dyno) past bolts and gear to a slightly runout section at top. Clipping the chains will make you feel like a badass!

Definitely a bit harder if you're under 5'9 (although that could be said about a lot of routes at the New)

Location 

Starts at the flake around the corner from Will to Power

Protection 

4 bolts, trad rack, 1 pin. Bolted anchor.
