Start off on some decent holds then launch into the crux which consists of moving to and off of two sloping small crimps, the route then eases up to about 5.9 or 5.10 past 3 more bolts to shuts.


This route is near the end of the Main Wall. The route starts to the left of the inside corner (Monkey Girl).


3 Bolts, stick clipping the first bolt is recommended as the crux is below this bolt.

Yeah, that was me that actually broke it about 8 weeks ago. Definitely easier now. But I think what is left won't stay for long either which will change it considerably again.

This climb has experienced broken holds and has gotten easier as a result over the years. It was solid 12b BITD, probably 11d as it stands now.
