Holy Roller offers some awesome positioning, bouldery crux moves, and demands an attention to detail when it comes to your feet. It's also a good training route for other power endurance projects.
The first section delivers some technical climbing in between bigger holds and checks in around 5.9 or so.
The second section is steep and bouldery! From the break, move up and right over the bulge passing good hand holds and a dearth of footholds. Move up to a very standout solution pocket up and left of streak. From there move slightly right again into the streak, crimps, and a toss to a chicken head. The crux moves are really good. Finish up with some big steep moves, and then pass a giant hueco. If need be you could sit in it and take in the view.
Hanging draws is a bit of a chore, making onsights difficult. It’s a tough read from the ground. Once the draws are hanging though and you know where the holds are, well, it makes a world of difference for redpoint burns.
