Drill Wavin' New Haven


Start on the obvious clean and beautiful slanting arete. Carefully work your way up the face past four bolts to a two bolt anchor. It is possible to move onto the right side of the arete and work some jugs to make this thing more 5.9 ish.


4 Bolts to 2 Anchors

despite how it looks the second bolt is easy to clip from a good stance

Yes, the second bolt isn't as bad as it looks from the deck. Probably a good stretch if you are 5'6", might be sketch if you are shorter. This is one of the cleanest lines at West Rock and I think one of the best, albeit short.
