Description 

This is the route just right of Worshippers. It gets points for being burly, reachy, and continuously steep. This route reminded me of a granitic version of some climb in Rifle. It has a blocky open hand moves, and even a big granite spike. It can be a bit creepy since you know it is on a wall called the Choss Temple, but so far, all the holds have remained in place.

Protection 

12 bolts.

If you climb this route look out for the top anchors. You can see the sleeve on one bolt and a bit of rock crumbling out on the other one. You can traverse to the anchors on the left to get down safely. Otherwise this route is the shit! Super overhanging on big jugs!
