Neale below Tiptoe
Tiptoe up the crystals protruding from the thin dike in the middle of the face between B-1 and B-2. There are three bolts, and no real need for anything else.
Belay from a strong stance in a niche up and left from the top of the climb, then walk off to the north.
3 bolts, gear to 3" for the anchor
If you start at the base of B2 (slightly left) you can probably get a piece there before stepping onto the face.

This is a pretty fun slab climb. It looks steep, but nice protrusions appear on the dikes (oops, I mean "women in comfortable shoes") everytime you need them.

One of my favorite leads in the Monument.

A solid 5.7 in my opinion. Bitchin stairway type footholds with nice transfer moves to the next set of stairs with a commiting move to easier ground. Be mindful of your anchors at the top as the rock is quite chossy and untrustworthy. Long slings around the boulders at the top for the anchors are defintely reccomended.

Super route with little effort but getting down. Great practice route for Snake Dike in the Valley! LOL

About halfway up, this follows an interesting quartz extrusion.

Not a pure slab route like it appears to be from the ground. There are a couple friction moves, but it's mainly face climbing on square edges of the dikes. Fun route.

My friend David led this one and I was fine doing it as a TR.
Boy, you think jamming a piece under that flake before the first bolt will help your head, then you see that sucker bend!

If Profundity is "R" then this climb is too.

An ok route. Very similar to many climbs at Mt Rushmore in the Black Hills, SD. Would go as 5.8 there. BTW... thats not quartz on the route, its feldspar (sorry, the geologist cant let that go unsaid!).

If your are at trash can rock, you should climb this. its pretty fun !

With the footwork this climb demands, this is a perfectly named route. All holds are super solid, except the flake below the first bolt.

A great warmup at JTree; one of my favorites, and do it every time I go to Trashcan Rock. If it were longer, it would be outstanding and worthy of 4 stars; I give it 3 stars as it is...

Lead this today, I thought by adding a placement of a Metolius Master Cam before the 1st bolt under the flake made it allot easier to focus.

I have always used a wired stopper slotted behind the flake, and it's less likely to damage it should a fall occur. I'd say this is a PG13 move up to the first bolt; not really a death fall possible at the start, but a great leg or ankle breaker.
