This is a generously bolted line that runs up gently overhanging rock. Thin moves to start, the crux is near or just after the first bolt, depending on how tall you are so stick-clipping the first is prudent if this is your limit. The movement is good, and the difficulty eases up quite a bit a little over halfway up, as the route becomes vertical, then less than vertical toward the anchors. Crimp, stem, reach, drop your knees and twist your hips to get through this one.


Downstream from Star Trek Wall. From Star Trek wall, follow the cliff, passing a high roof and the obvious line Crescenta, until you reach two bolted lines. The left line is Morning Dew, the right is New Tricks. If you reach the gorgeous and obvious splitter that is Ritz Cracker, you have gone too far. If you're coming from the other direction, you will of course pass Ritz Cracker to reach New Tricks.


9 draws (7 + 2 at the anchor)
