Climb through a few awkward side-pulls to easier terrain. The route trends left through the bottom and then straight up on easier holds. The bottom should clean up with traffic, but there isn't much of that at New Canyon.

Good warmup. We skipped the first bolt, and started directly under the second. This gave us a slightly overhanging start instead of traversing in.
