Description Suggest change

The monkey traverse is the center piece of the south side of Flagstaff.It's popular with first time Boulderers who spend most of the time falling off the first couple of moves and grizzled veterans who delight in cruising their one thousandth lap in front of them. The namesake traverse is a must do. Several high ball problems exist as well as a difficult low ball version of the traverse.

Getting There Suggest change

From the main parking area hike due South for 50 yards passing Smith Overhand along the way. This is a large west facing wall with lots of chalk and an obvious traverse.
