Super cool route with a very technical crux using ...


Holbytla means hole dweller in a language created by J.R Tolkien.

The route begins with 40 feet of mediocre 5.11 technical climbing up to a rest below a beautiful, 25 foot section of perfect blue stone. Skipping the crux bolt (unless you are super strong), sprint through a series of water polished pinches, pockets, slopers and edges to a jug and finish on a flawless 5.10 slab for another 25 feet.


On the Wailing Wall a couple of routes to the right of Pocketline to the Moon.


Lots of bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
