Chunky Monkey follows the line of fixed draws.


Begin on vertical face, continue up to an overhanging bulge with a dyno between two good horizontals, and finish on "brainy" face above. Traverse right to a crack after pulling onto the face above the final small roof.


Obvious bulging face with bolts.


8 bolts with bolted anchor on the top. Consider stick clipping the first bolt.

I left a biner on bolt 3 to help for cleaning on the lower, because that swing out sucks and I was too tired to TR it after climbing it. If anyone wants it, go for it, I bootied it in Italy on my honeymoon last year.
