Irreverance climbs up the middle of the blocky pillar in the Testament Slab area. Similar to Revelations the first bolt is high off the deck and the moves are harder getting there. Again, use a stick clip if you have any hesitations reaching the first bolt.
While this route is graded 5.10a, it felt hard based on the pebble pinching insecure nature through the crux reaching the fourth bolt. Find small holds that aren't as good as you want them to be and move on. Once you clip the fourth bolt the climbing eases considerably to its own set of chains.
