Rockfax Description
At the bulge on New Dawn climb up right through the overlaps to a shake-out. A boulder-problem may get you to the still pressing and airy head-wall. Memorable. © Rockfax

First redders today. Felt like I had time which is rare, satisfying

Sorted out the sequence in the boulder, then a swift 2nd RP. 5th go.

much better than expected with the hardest moves for me being on the start of new dawn

should have had it first redpoint? instead it took a further 10! A 7b+ short of a good hold. Thanks Al and Sarah

Put the draws in and had a look at the moves, then did it first go. I wish all routes went so easily.

Clean from side pull block at start of crux to top. Getting pinch a bit more consistently.

Good route. Maybe hard enough for 8a I think.

1st 8a. Jerry Moffat onsighted it with my draws. Used to be graded 7c+ and was called "Shock of the New" when Steve Rhodes made the 1st ascent.
