Silent but Deadly

Climb the vertical to slightly bulging face via edges and sloping holds to a shared anchor with Silent Scream (aka Shock the Monkey). The crux is low and over quickly, after which it's just fun and featured face climbing to the top.
Due to the southern orientation and the sloping nature of some holds it's perhaps best done when cold.
Located on the scooped face just right of Silent Scream (aka Shock the Monkey).
3 bolts (3/8"), gear to 3" for the anchor

I did this route in the mid-afternoon, when the rock was hot and greasy. It was no giveaway. I would go so far as to call it 5.11b/c or straight up 5.11c. In any case, the crux was immensely fun and crimpy. A definite "do" route at Pixie Rock.

Much easier than Monaco. The Miramontes calls this .11b, but it is much easier than a lot of the other .11b climbs I have been on in the park. Sequential and fun! More of a technical climb than burly. I did this in cooler temperatures, which I'm sure helped...
