Higher Messiah is an extension or second pitch to the 5.10 base route, Leper Messiah.  It links into a single pitch from the ground, creating a 20 bolt, 165 ft. mega-pitch with the 5.11 crux near the top.  

Caution:  At mid-height it crosses a nearly unavoidable pile of large blocks.  A two hour cleaning session with a crowbar produced the current, seemingly solid configuration (Oct. 2018).  Tread lightly.  Geologic time includes now.  This feature mars an otherwise high quality route.


Start on Leper Messiah and continue straight up the second pitch.


9 bolts as a second pitch, or 20 clips for the full link-up.
