I did this climb quiet a long time ago, and it stands out as one of the best single pitches in The Monument. There is a plaque at the base. I seem to remember the upper third of the route being the crux protected by some green Aliens. The climb follows a small crack recessed in a shallow squeeze. I remember doing some squeezing next to a large block that seemed to be fairly secure, but you never know.... You end up jamming with one hand and doing the Wiggle Worm with your body. It is a great climb to do if hiking all the way to Super Crack of the Monument.
This route is roughly a 200 feet up canyon from Supercrack. Look for a plaque and a splitter!
I would take one of each up to a #1 and maybe 3-5 #0.5 Camalots with a few green Alien size, too. There are anchors at the top. Bring two ropes to rap.

Amazing route, but don't be fooled. You'll need all the small gear you've got. I would recommend at least the 2 green Aliens metioned above if not more, but I would also take at least doubles of BD 0.3 and 0.4s as well. I used them all and still wanted more. Great position, amazing climbing...a must do if you wander all the way up to Super Crack.
