This is the line just left on center on the Monster Block's north face, and climbs up into a horizontal seam, which is followed slightly right to a lip encounter. It starts more or less downhill from the remnants of the old rock terrace below the leftmost problem (perhaps still undone, an old Steve Mammen project with a good hueco down low and not much else -- save an enhanced crimp or two, not the work of Mammen).
Start off the sloping dirt and muckle onto a good crimp rail. Make a big move up and left to a poor crimper, then work back right along the seam until you're in position to grab the lip (sloping but textured). Rock and roll over ...
This is a fairly brilliant face climb for those who like crimping.
Two to three crash pads.

Amazing problem. After reaching the crimps in the upper seam, I locked off and threw up and right for the lip at the roof. This seems to be a much better finish than continuing along worsening crimps to the top.

Watch the top out on this one. I thought that it would be easy and almost paid with a broken ankle. My feet cut and by the grace of God I was able to hang on and top out.
