Holy Roller offers some awesome positioning, bouldery crux moves, and demands an attention to detail when it comes to your feet. It's also a good training route for other power endurance projects.
Second route right of Solitaire. The first section delivers some technical climbing in between bigger holds and checks in around 5.9 or so.
The second section is steep, solid, and bouldery! From the break, move up and right over bulge passing good hand holds and a dearth of footholds. Move up to a very standout solution pocket up and left of streak. From there move slightly right again into the streak, crimps, and a full toss to a giant chicken head! The crux moves are really good! Finish up with some large steep moves, and then pass the giant hueco, that, if need be, you could sit in, take a rest and enjoy the view.
Starts just left of two Oak trees. Second route right of Solitaire.
