There is one important thing missing here. The name of my partner, who also did the crux pitch, hand bolted , on lead. A spectacular job. Dustin Cormier, from Bartlett .

downclimbed some of those upper pitches in a diagonal line trying to reach the bottom of double crack last summer . looked  like it would be a nice line going up though.

some other newer routes at north bald cap  . "gold fever" 5.7 half way between double crack and call of the wild is a corner -arete system visible from the road 600ft 4 pitches runnout on easier ground with decent pro when needed. climb the series of four aretes to beneath a hugh roof .go through the roof on the right and finish up at the anchors of call of the wild . also a new line lower right climbing searching for gold for one pitch and continue straight up where searching for gold trends left finishing fifty feet right of searching for gold. a bolt or two to be added next summer to clean it up 5.8-5.9 ish. there is one other new route up high leading to cc arete. 50-80ft right of going nowhere/cc arete is a white slab leading up to cc arete with some bolts as needed 5.9ish leading to the base of cc arete which now has a two bolt anchor at its base to facilitate belaying at the arete easier. we did this line because we could not figure out how to get there on the other line. it was not as obvious as we thought it might be.  anyhow cc arete is awsome with tremendous exposure and seemed hard for the grade.
