Ever More New Routes at the Meadow River

The past couple weekends at the New River Gorge have been hot and humid, but have yielded some new routes.  I bolted a route to the right of “Depth Charge” at the Other Place – Meadow River.

I originally intended the route to climb all the way to the almost blank roof, however, upon further inspection decided to end the route lower; The climbing directly to the roof in-itself is really loss and chossy and does not add much to the route.  Also, there is a V7 or V8 boulder problem after 6 bolts of good 5.11 climbing.  I am going to leave the upper anchor and leave the V8 boulder problem finish as an open project, but have sent “Astro-Lube Sex Wax” 5.11b.

I bolted another route, at the Area 51 area of the Meadow River Gorge.  This route needs some cleaning, but I am calling it “Safety Word” 5.12a.  I’ve been keeping a running tally of the updated routes and will post it here:
