DescriptionSay your prayers? Naaaah, you can save them. The Rosary offers salvation so you won't need any Hail Marys.
Zig zag up big steps and blocks following a hand crack to a small ledge. Climb above another set of blocks and hit a steep face split by a fingertip seam. Pop in some gear and fire this first crux. Finish about 10 feet above at another resting ledge. From this point two options exist, the left exit is a clean, shallow diheral, and the right is a steeper, more brittle, but slightly easier squeeze. Take some time here to reflect upon your spiritual growth and remark on past flails, when in doubt: Choose The Right.
Build an anchor above using a tree and cracks. Walk off to the west.
Overall The Rosary is a well-protected route that offers a nice variety of moves separated by two good rests. The route can be a bit of a grunt, but climbs pretty solid rock and goes into the shade rather early. The best time to climb The Rosary is on Easter, Lent, or Palm Sunday.
