I did this route again a couple of weeks ago. Since we cleaned up the lower traverse a bit more it seems easier than 12a. It's still a fun route with deceptively hard climbing up high. May 2, 2007

I like bolt's 3ft apart or closer. That way I can yard my way through all the crux's when I get my old ass out climbing again. Apr 14, 2008

If this climb goes at 11+ I must have botched the crux sequence. Otherwise, I would downgrade Holy Moley to 11b/c (having just been on it a couple weeks ago).

Thanks Mark, we are still looking for more input on the grade. Now give it a star or a bomb or what ever you think it deserves. Thanks. Nov 16, 2009

this can go on gear for sure.

the first piece (a jug/slot) isn't until around the 3rd bolt (20ft??), but the landing is flat and big (note: it could easily take a crash pad). furthermore, the next 20ft offer tons of good gear opportunities, ie. orange/yellow tcu's and nuts. only the last 10 ft would be hard to protect. but that section's only 5.8.

The name sort of alludes to the fact that the top half would go on gear. So no great insight there. Feb 12, 2010

No worries Randy. Let us know if you do this on gear. It would be a proud send, crash pads or not. Mar 5, 2010

Thought this thing was a lot more fun than it looks from the ground! Definitely worth getting on Apr 27, 2015
