Josh Horniak taking a stroll up Howler Monkey .10d
|Auburn Cliffs Open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays till Sundown! MORE INFO >>>|
Climb the start of Local Yokel (5.8), and instead of heading up onto the chosspile, head up and right into a large (10 -12 feet) feature on nearly vertical rock. Traverse the feature using anything you can find to hold onto, and then top out to the top anchors.
The feature is awesome, and requires quite a bit of fancy footwork.
6 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor, shared with Confusion Tactics (5.12a).

Climbed this over the weekend. The fifth bolt (at the crux) was completely loose and spinning. We tried to tighten it by hand as much as possible but when we got to it, the nut was about to fall off it was so loose. Great climb, be careful at this point though until this is fixed.

I've always gone straight up the corner past the right side of the roof past a one or two more bolts to the same anchor as the Local Yokel.

Yep, after the roof you can go to either anchor: Confusion or Local. I think the way rope runs is a little better from Confusion's anchor, but certainly they both work!

i also climbed this weekend, whipped on that bolt in question a few times and held just fine, but i agree it could use a little tightening.
