Description

Monkey Shine climbs the long slab immediately to the right of The Sprawl. The slab actually defines the cut that separates The Monkey House proper from the uphill sector that has the Death Block above and Home Boy Bonanza.

Run the slab up to a small roof, pull this on the right, and chase some more bolts. There is a loose block jammed into a slot at the roof. This can be pulled, perhaps, but every time I went up to do so, far too many people were below to make this a safe proposition. Yank it if you can, but the block is stable and it does not need to be pulled to enjoy the climb. There is a slightly tricky crux just before the anchor.

Protection

QD only. This 95 foot route needs a 60m rope to descend and about a dozen draws. There is a double bolt anchor at the top.
