Innocent Victim offers a more challenging warm-up than Benedictine Punk to access Holier than Thou. Although it serves it’s purpose as a warm up the climbing doesn’t offer much else. The crux come low on the climb around the third bolt with what felt like awkward moves to connect knobs and nubbins. Near the top the angle eases up dramatically to a simple romp to the anchors. I can’t imagine doing this route if not for wanting to get to Holier than Thou, but hey, maybe it’s your thing.
There are two sets of anchors stacked above each other which allows for rappelling from one set while another party climbs up if needed.
