As you walk up the trail and see the boulder, the first face you see has a couple of chalked up lines on both the left and right side. The right side line with a sitdown start that diagonals upward and left, either using a rail or not, to a high top out is probably one of the most fun lines I climbed on at the holy boulders during my very short trip. Probably goes at V4 but wish it was listed on here with a name and what not since its really fun.

Thanks, I was only at the holies for one day and just thought it strange they feature a pic of the problem 'atlus' but don't list it. so I made a listing for it. but yeah, I don't really know the other climbs.
