Flying Monkeys

Description 

A short hard crux on smaller holds leads to easier climbing on the face above.
Start off the ledge by stepping into a bowl-shaped depression in the wall and start climbing in earnest. Clip a bolt and crimp up over the lip of this bowl and boulder through the crux. Clip another bolt and climb easier face moves to the top with a good anchor.


Location 

The approach trail to Emerald City leads up below a large ledge,perhaps 10 meters up that lies below a flat, vertical, brown and tan striped wall. Access the ledge via scrambling to the left and arrive at the base of 5 sport climbs, from left to right being:
Flying Monkeys, Ruby Slippers, Diamond In the Rough, Oz, and Lollipop Kids.


Protection 

5 bolts + anchors.
