Monkey Dance, Mission Gorge 5.10b

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Start off with an overhang and then a cruxy lieback on classic Mission Gorge feet which leads to easier ground. Great fun with good stances. Too bad the second half isn't as interesting as the first.

Location 

A little ways uphill from the climber's loop trail at the far right end of the Limbo area. Just right of an obvious offwidth "Back to Basics".

Standard Deviation, also 5.10b is the last bolted climb up the hill from Monkey Dance and is also worthy of attention.

Protection 

4 bolts to a bolt anchor. First bolt can be clipped by easier ground to the right before you start the overhang section for added safety.
