A nice, free-flowing sport line up the backside of the Holey Moley Wall. Begin by laying off a wavering, thick crack feature and follow the steep line of bolts towards the route's crux at a bulge. Finish the line using a few solid flakes and deep edges. A mild run-out up a trough ends the line at a two bolt chain anchor. A fine line with a fair amount of pump! A great warm-up for the other routes at the wall.


At the end of the Holey Moley Wall, on the right side, around the corner from Rollercoaster.


Seven bolts to a chain anchor.

This route is fabulous. Every time I repeat it, Im psyched. A must do for people sampling sport routes at Ibex area. Also a good warm-up for the harder ones.

First Bolt is rusting out. The rest of the bolts look good although I found the clipping stances to be strange on several. This was a typical Ibex climb in that the bolting is spaced a bit far by today's standard. With the wall behind you this feels extra sketchy. That being said the grippy quartzite and off-balance liebacking make this a fun and unique climbing experience.
