This is the best climb on Victoria Tower. Mossy Boobs (aka Mossy Tits in the Watts Book) starts out climbing through large huecos on less than vertical rock before squaring up to a steeper face near the top that has an abundant of great holds and large pockets. The Watts book grades this climb at 5.10c which feels way to hard of a grade. While the upper section is steeper, there are huge gym-like holds to use the entire way and isn't any harder than 5.10a. It felt easier than the neighboring climb to the left, The Safe Zone, which also goes at 5.10a.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
