Leading up Holy Wall in January 2007. Look at all ...
An extremely pocketed and chalked-up face route with thin feet past the first bolt and nice, steep climbing above. Bolt line moves right-ish but the route can be climbed left of the bolt line at about the same grade. Almost too many pockets to choose from!
This is one of those routes that gets dramatically easier the more you climb it. So many pockets--all of which are massively chalked up--make it a challenging onsight. An excellent route though!

Slightly easier if you use the crack to the left at the first crux (2nd to 3rd bolt), or a foot on the face left of that crack. One book says this reduces the rating to 5.9, though I think it's still probably 5.10- overall considering the pump at the sequency upper crux.
Earlier this summer someone used chalk to put a huge "X" above the fourth bolt. We checked it out last night. The bolt itself is fine but the hanger was an old thin SMC hanger. I replaced the hanger last night with a SS Pagan hanger. I tried hard to remove the chalk "X" but it's still visible. If you have a brush with you the next time you're on this route, please brush away that "X".
