Great route, every bit as good as Bumblie Takes a Tumblie. Always worth doing both. Similar in nature with lower-angle, juggy opening to steep climbing above. Interesting stemming to reach clips, then up into power, semi-bouldery crux. Move right around patina patch to lower-angle seam and stay focused on slabby moves to final easy top section. Anchors could come sooner as last 15 feet is easy 5th class.
Left of New York...
Bolts. Long way to first on easy 5th class. Could place some gear if you want.

With so many other great routes on Bumblie, this route gets over looked I think, but it definitely deserves more attention. Really fun steep scoop leads you into a bouldery transition into a thin section to a slab finish. Varied and enjoyable the whole way. Instead of doing New York is Not the City AGAIN, give this a go!
