Description

This is a small crag with 3 moderate crack routes on it, just a few minutes off of the road. The crag is shaded in early morning but probably encounters sun at least before noon.

All three routes are somewhere between 5.7 and 5.9, with my best estimate on each being 5.8. All 3 routes are reasonably protected with a run of cams from 0.75" (yellow Alien) to 3.5" (blue Camalot). An extra red Camalot could be used on each of the 3 routes if you like sewing it up.

To descend, walk off to the NW and down the hill at the side and back to the base, an easy 2 minute walk even in climbing shoes.

Getting There

Park as for Monkey Skull and look to the West a few hundred yards. There is a group of smaller crags 50 meters in elevation above the road, the upper and center of these is the Rhesus Monkey. With some effort, the three hand-cracks that split the upper section of the rock can be seen from the road.

Pick a place on the hill and walk up to the crag. The approach time is ~ 3 minutes.
