Nearing the top.


Some might find this a bit heady. Crux is the first sequence of moves off the ground. Stays interesting for 15' +/-. Reachy move , then gets easier. Pro is limited at the start, but gets better in the middle, then run out (easy) at the top. Scramble over to the anchors on Monkey Business to rap off.


The obvious buttress left of Monkey Business chimney


Gear. No anchors at top.
