Long route with lots of jugs, good sidepulls and a couple of pockets. There is a slight bulge near the top which is easily navigated via the huge jugs.
Well bolted and cleaned, very fun.
This is now the right most route on the wall, about 10 feet right of Primate Grooming Procedures.
12 bolts with 1 rap hanger and 1 chain at the top

So, Jason: Darren has this as Don't Feed the Monkey and the line left of Superfly as Don't Touch the Monkey.
Which is it?

Wow, this is just such a stellar route! Long, continuous and quality 5.easy climbing. A must-do on the Orangutan Wall.
And please... Don't FEED the monkey!

Only one set of chains at anchor and second bolt had no rap ring or other means of routing rope for descent. In hindsite I should have left a carabiner. Future parties might want to bring a quick link to leave behind.

pretty stinking good climb! around the 8-10th bolt there is a right hand hold just right of the bolt that looks to have been chipped...if so, what was the point? to bring it from a 5.6 with one 5.7 move to a plain ole 5.6? (4 stars if that hold wasnt chipped). Keep in mind that my intent is to ask if that was chipped more than to accuse that is was. if anyone knows please answer.

Jordy, I'm 99.9% certain that no one "chipped a hold" on this route. So you can give it 4 stars.

Tremendous route! After the initial ramp, there must be at least 70ft of continuous 5.7 climbing, all on great holds and well protected but certainly sustained for the grade.
