Description

The Monkey House is the leftward continuation of The Wall of The '90s. There are now 16 or so routes in this sector of the wall. Numbering begins with Psycho Hose Beast (1) which is immediately to the left of New Pollution and continues on uphill to Home Boy Bonanza (18) at the Death Rock. Routes vary in length from 50 - 60 feet to 85 feet, so for the most part a 60m rope will suffice for everything. The routes face West to North, get good evening sun, and a bit of shade higher up the hill. Overall, the rock quality is superb and worth the five minutes of added hike from The Wall of The '90s.

Getting There

The Monkey House is immediately West of Tunnel 2, 5.5 up Clear Creek Canyon on 6th Avenue. Parking for several cars is available on the South side of the highway, but this has been recently limited by CDOT. Trails to the base follow the obvious wash or the small ridge line at the parking area.
