Description

A hard boulder start sets one up for the crux. It appears as though the hold that ends the crux has broken making it harder than 5.10c. After the 3rd bolt more 5.10- is encountered ending with an in-obvious steep finish passing the last bolt. The rock is very good, Josh red varnish.

Protection

The pro consists of 5 bolts with an old school spacing. Not scary runout but not overprotected.

If one goes by the descriptions in the guide(s), I believe this is actually Times of Holyness (5.11c). The route pictured above is few hundred feet left of the actual route. That would explain why it was likely harder than 5.10c. As noted in the '92 Vogel guide, Xenalmorph is just about the Northwest corner of the lower tier. Jan 19, 2015
