This route climbs the 50 foot pillar about 50 feet to the right of Damned Dirty Apes. Start up the front of the pillar and wrap around to the left side.


This is currently the northern-most route in the Planet of the Apes area. If at Damned Dirty Apes, look right for the obvious 50 foot pillar.


6 bolts and a #1 cam between bolts 3 and 4. 2 bolt anchor.

Thanks to Roy for bolting the climb and allowing me the FA.

I think the route itself may in fact be about 60 ft. in that it starts far right and works its way around this small pillar to the far left. Fun line!
