This video is an attempt to highlight not only the quality of the climbing at the New, but the style of climbing that this special place offers.
Gun Control is probably about 5.13c in comparison to the other routes in the area and in my belief should stand as an example (if given the right features and rock quality), to the budding route developers with their charged up “bolt guns” to investigate the potential for natural protection when equipping a route and have some gun control.
Obviously there are some continuity errors when the angles change, but whatever…
Big thanks to La Sportiva for the production support. Thanks to Mike Williams for the camera work and a huge thanks to the New River Alliance of climbers for keeping things tight with the Park Service!!
