BETA PHOTO: Monkey Moves - David Frost handling the ropes


Start in an alcove at the SE corner of the cliff. Monkey pull through the two mini roofs following discontinuous cracks with decent pro to the 2 SS Rap hangers. Getting off the ground and out of the alcove over the 1st roof is the crux.


Located on the SE corner of the crag. Situated between The Trembling and The Pin.


Gear to 3".

Note that the guide book had the routes on this end in the wrong order:

1. Silverdyke 5.7
2. The Pin 5.10 - this is immediately left of Silverdyke and identified by the old piton in the thin crack 10' off the ground
3. Monkey Moves 5.8 - this is about 30 feet left of The Pin and has top anchors with steel rap carabiners
