1st 5.12 at the New!!!
Thin crimpy face climbing at its best.
You can start on the left edges or on the right, I've done the climb both ways, I think the left is easier for shorter folks and the right for taller folks.
The crux is working out the moves without sweating off, pulling a pulley or freezing to death.
Obvious thin crimpy face under west side of amphitheatre.
Well bolted, 3 bolts of anchors.

This may be one of the 1st bolted routes in the New, did it back in the mid 1980's when there all most no sport routes, reminded me of Devils Lake WI, face climbing very thin,

One of my first 5.12 ticks. The description is spot on. If you breathe wrong or sneeze you will fly off this thing in a heartbeat. Very tenuous but very enjoyable when it flows properly.
