Zackary just above the pin on Holy land


This climb starts 10-20 feet to the left of Echo, the 4-pitch climb, at a pin. A very decent climb with fun moves throughout, some of the I-didn't-know-I-could stretch-like-that variety.

Pitch 1: Follow a short depression by slabbing and stemming up to a pin, then to more bolts (with some gear) while trending left and up. You're heading for a two-bolt anchor in a really cool pocket; 60-meter ropes, however, will reach the bolts under the roof.

Pitch 2 (optional if you prefer to stop at the pocket, and crux pitch): If you make this into two pitches, follow up past a few solution pockets and bolts to a two-bolt anchor under the roof.


Roughly 10-20 feet to the left of Echo (the climb); but almost directly under the center of the roof; Future Shock lies to the left of this climb another 10-20 feet.


Standard rack. Decent gear. Some bolts and a couple pins. Two-bolt anchors at the end of each pitch.

Dosn't this start 10 to 20ft left of Relic Hunter not Echo?

Couple of things... the route is called Holy Land, not Promised Land. Also, if you follow the description of the second pitch in the Handren book (going left off the anchor and aiming for a hole where you can place a tricam), you will find yourself on Bulletproof, which is a 5.9. That route eventually hooks up with the second pitch of Holy Land, but if you're expecting 5.6 slab climbing when you start up, you're in for a surprise.
