Description 

Tika Monster (a.k.a. Spank) climbs up the right side of the steepest wall at the Drive By Crag. It can be recognized as the line immediately to the right of Dirty Smelly Hippy.

Start in a dihedral and climb up past two big ledges. From the second ledge, head up the steep wall (12a) to a big resting hold. From the rest hold, bust a long, powerful sequence to the chains. The rock gets steeper toward the top and the moves require cool body tension.

Because of the vigorous climbing at the top of the route, the last draw is often skipped.
