Can't get the link to work. Anyone recall what the two new routes were?

Link worked for me:
Late last month, Todd Tumolo and Dusty Eroh completed the first ascent of Neve Ruse (V AI5 R/X, 4,000') on the relatively untraveled North Face of Mt. Bradley (9,104') in Alaska's Ruth Gorge. On May 6, nine days later, Tumolo teamed up with Josh Hoeschen to climb another mostly new route, The Fire Escape (V AI4 5.6 65 degrees, 4,000'), this time on the east face of Mt. Johnson (8,460').

Maybe it's a bad perspective, but the first route Neve Ruse looks contrived. The second route Fire Escape is brilliant.

Perhaps thats why they named it that. 'Neve Ruse' looks like 'Never Use' with the R misplaced.
