NEWTOWN PIPPIN - 5.9 *** 65' F (8b)
Best route on the Lower WF Wall, much better than it looks. Climbs the right side of the narrow face 70' left of Barbies...to the 2 cold shut anchor. FA 4/26/09
(5th route from the right, and 8th from the left end on the Lower WF Wall)
NORTHERN SPY - 5.9- ** 65’ F (8b)
Start as for Newtown Pippin and climb the left side of the face (may want to clip the first bolt on Newtown P.), avoiding any holds on that route, and stemming or resting off the face on the left – to the same top anchors. Very good, sustained and interesting climbing, although a bit challenging and contrived staying on route.
