Fun climbing. Big moves leading to thin holds up top.
Steep RIGHT line on New Cliche Wall.
5 bolts, chains.

The crux move on New Cliche

This is a great route...after making a long reach to a big hold at the lip (two handed), the fun begins!
To approach this little formation, hike up the Mill B North Fork trail past the S Turn area. A short distance past the switchbacks, the trail levels out. If you look to the left, towards the creek, you'll notice a small formation down in the trees. This is it, A short bushwhack leads to the base.

Very soft. If you're cranking 12- this should be a flash. Good route for sure.

Really fun route! the crux for me was figuring out how to make the clip just before the anchors, couldn't find decent feet. Also the fixed draw at the crux clip[ is getting a little sketchy, make sure the gate closes.

Not sure how you could describe this as very soft... if you are climbing 12- you probably won't be getting up this.

This is a superb line. Have not got the redpoint on it yet (tore my miniscus hoping over the lip after the long reach)... but concerning the last clip, i too, thought it was pretty difficult... i think it would be way easier (and safe) to skip the last bolt... If you blow it, and you have a good belay, you will take a ride, but will hit nothing but space...
