Buddy Price Moving on up Fool Effect 9-2010.

Description 

This is a great long sport route, probably one of the longest single pitch sport routes at the New, and it's only 5.9! The lower portion is the crux. Climb the face straight up to reach a short flake system. Follow this to the end and continue over small overhangs to the finish.

Location 

Start in the middle of the Kaymoor Slab.

Protection 

13 bolts. If you really wanted to, you could supplement it with gear, but it's not at all necessary. No anchors at the top since a 70M rope would be needed to reach the ground. Anchors can be found by walking along the cliff top and using one of the other sets of anchors for the other routes here.

We just set an anchor from any one of the stout trees at the top.
