Start just left of The Raven, below a series of huecos on the blunt arete. Climb the steep huecos past 3 bolts to a ledge, continue up to a short left facing corner and into the lower angle ramp/large hueco. Step up and left onto a small ledge and then back right to a horozontal dike with some large crystals. climb onto the dike(crux) and face climb up, slightly right at the bulge then back left to the anchor. Extending with longer draws the 4th and 6th(chicken bolts) will help with rope drag on this long route.


12 bolts, chain anchor(shared with The Raven).

Way before there was a guide, before there was a bunch of easy routes and even before there were other climbers... there was Holey Moley, the original "Babe Attractor".

I did it one summer and attracted nothing but flies...

but it is a very fun route none the less...

It's fun, but it would be more fun with babes!

IMO, the best of the easy stuff at New Jack. Fun long jug haul (5.9-?) with a bit of thin slab at the end.

Really fun climb! Crux is on the last bulge before the anchors- a must do for sure!

Crux goes a couple ways, then a fun bit of exposure up top on easier ground before the anchors.
