The thin start to the Holy Grail with the overhang...
This is the only bolted drytool line left of the ice. Start in a semi-overhanging crack that trends right. Climb the thin seam to an overlap following a slightly left-trending seam to the overhanging finish on decent but hard to read holds. It is a fun, short and sustained route with a spicy finish! This adds some drytool diversity to the area and is sure to wear down your steel on the Gneiss. Make sure you have a solid belayer on this circus sideshow.
This is left of The Shroud ice route and left of the trad Crown of Thorns route.
5 bolts to a 2-bolt top anchor.
