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

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.
