Description 

Start up easy ramp and cracks. Above this is an awkward section of liebacking that eventually eases to cool face moves. The last sequence involves a mono pull!

Climbing 2 feet to the left avoids the mono move altogether.

Aka Slug Hole because the mono is often wet.

Not a horrible route pretty clean solid holds. The mono is worthless.

Nice little route, interesting mix of juggy, crack, and crimpy-face climbing. Climbed it a few times choosing different combinations each time. The mono was an interesting/fun move - but not necessary as you can go to either side.

The mono is just fun. Loved it. Spices up the climb a bit. It is avoidable though.
