BETA PHOTO: Newt Wall features hangerless bolts and TR anchors...


Hueco-dotted sandstone, hangerless bolts . . . pretty vertical face - must be Newt Wall!

Getting There 

This bit of rock is the furthest west of the formations. Distinguishable by the block in front of it and the unchopped TR bolts.

The cruz start makes you reach long over a bulge to a less than great pocket . From there pull the bulge and gun for a diagonal side pull. some more kind-of-thin climbing leads to better huecos up top . An excellent route with its own TR anchors. The start is about 20 left of the big land mark boulder. Mostly solid and clean as far as quality is concerned......[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Has bolts (since 2004). Best line on the rock.

The farthest bolt on the Newt-ist Colony is completely loose. Already mentioned on the route page. Would recommend setting up a directional on the single good bolt and using the other set of bolts nearby for top roping.
