Description

Holly Device is a super fun mixed face route with really pleasant holds up a steep featured buttress, plus a typical Josh grain finish above the last bolt!

Location

This is the furthest left of three mixed face routes about 100' left of Spitwad. Begins up a steep, but moderate left curving crack.

To descend, walk off to the east or scramble west 4th class to the bolted rap anchor above Young Lust.

Protection

Four brand-new ASCA bolts, a couple finger to hand size cams for the easy crack leading up to the first bolt. Many options for the belay but most will find small TCU's to 1" work well.

On the first ascent;..there were only three bolts;......i was so scared at the top that I couldn't stop to place a bolt. After I got to the top with a very long run out...i lowered down and added the last bolt. It was an exciting and memorable experience. Feb 8, 2015
