John pulling the lip on his problem.

Description 

This is a body length offset tight hands splitter. Over the lip it turns into great hands, but it is suprisingly hard pulling over. Start on the one good hand at the back of the roof. Once over the lip, you can step off, or if you really want you can top out the boulder which gets really crumbly and licheny at the top. It was named because John had just gotten a new pair of shoes, and he tested them out on the FA of this problem.


Location 

Once on 700N drive 0.3 miles and turn left on 700NA. Take a right at the fork in the road about 0.2 miles further, and another right at the fork in the road after another 0.1 miles. Park shortly after right where the slab meets the road. Walk up the slab, following the obvious dike on the right. Look to the right to spy a fire ring with some graffiti on the rocks behind it. To the left of the fire ring you will see a big dead tree, and New Shoes is in the boulders right under that tree.


Protection 

A pad.
