Description 

Clip the first three bolts of Cyclops, then go left. The crux is a short crimpfest with some pretty pumpy climbing above.


Location 

Look for the fixed chain draw on the grey bulge in the middle of the wall. This marks Monster Slayer.

First climbed by Peter Gram after a lengthy siege by numerous folks. The second ascent was by a visiting hardman named Jerry from Slovenia who onsighted it without breathing hard (he also went on an onsighting spree at the Dungeon, seriously impressing us locals). I think it's probably 13a. Peter thought it might be 12d. Jerry thought 13a, but he could have just been being polite. Regardless, it's in that range.

The start is regretably tweaky on small pockets (at least for me, I'm not Mono) to a great rest. A strenuous traverse leads left to the obvious hold to clip the chain draw from. A great 4 move boulder problem (somewhere in the v6-7 range) gets one to a jug above. The climbing above is significantly easier.

If it was just the BP crux it would probably be 3-4 stars but the start detracts from the overall quality for me.
