DescriptionThis climb is sweet!! Clip the Via Dolorosa anchors, and gaze up the slightly overhanging arete above you. Get psyched, crank on a jug to clip the first bolt, and you're off. Most of the climbing is on the right side of the arete, but get creative, you might like what you find around the corner. Super fun, thought provoking arete climbing. The crux is toward the top, but there are several tricky sections depending on how you use the arete. Move out right onto the face to clip the chains.
Rock quality on The Holy Road is pretty good for the most part. There are a few slightly crumbly sections, but it will clean up really nicely. This is Smith, a little crumble factor increases the fun!
