So there you are looking at a wall covered in 2" thick moss and you say "Hey, I think I want to climb that." If this sounds like you then this route is definitly for you. The movement on this route is straight forward ( I did this with an old pair of trail runners) and the pro isn't terrible. The route wouldn't be that bad if someone wanted to go through the effort of cleaning all the moss off the route. One more thing to include is that there is a terrible thorn monster midway up the route. He ate both me and my partner. If you see him, please slay the dreadful thing. Fat bolts await the amazing climber directly above the main block.
This route runs up a meandering crack along the right side of the obvious block sticking out from the middle of the wall.
Pro to 2"

I'm glad to hear that people are making it down to the New Frontier Cliff!

I also tried this thing in approach shoes a few years back. I remember thinking at the time that it seemed like gear went from about 2" and up, not up to 2". maybe that was all the moss talking.

Could someone beef up the location info for this climb? Not saying I want to do it, but there's really no point in adding it unless you're gonna explain how to find it. Perhaps Broughton needs to be broken up into its smaller sectors...
