In Bob D’Antonio’s new guidebook for Shelf, this climb is listed as New Corner. Start on the rough dark brown rock and work your way up to a double crack system. At this point, the wall goes a little negative, but the feet are good and there are great jams and locks to supplement the face holds. Finish on a large flat ledge to the right of the crack system, where the right crack ends. I list this route here as .10a since that is the rating in Bob’s guide. I felt the climb is easier than Dillinger; I’d say 5.9. Rappel to descend.
New Comer is in the shallow corner between Shelfish and Dillinger.
8 bolts, bolt anchor.

Fun route with a variety of techniques. It feels surprisingly steep at the top.

Super fun! It's really only 10 when you pull over the mini roof into the shallow chimney. The rest is very fun and all different!
