DescriptionA Josh classic! VERY popular route that draws a big crowd. Silent Scream climbs the bucketed face about thirty feet right of Who's First in the center of the SE face of Pixie Rock. Reach up, pull down. A little tricky move at the top keeps it exciting all the way home. Scramble down off the back and set your anchor. Long slings or a couple of cordalettes can be used to run the anchor up and over the top of the route.
Toproping: You can scramble up the back side of Pixie or up the steep slot to the left of the route to set an anchor at the top. Be very careful either way!
The name Shock The Monkey comes from a Peter Gabriel song of the same name from his 1982 Security release.
