Description Suggest change

The stellar Monkey Traverse is perhaps the most chalked piece of rock at Flagstaff. This pumpy and technical traverse is highly recommended and worth the effort required to beg, borrow or steal the requisite beta. The traverse is most often done right to left, but the return trip earns extra credit.

The traditional version climbs at mid-height and logically breaks into 3 sections each separated by a no hands rest. The first section is juggy and overhanging. The second section climbs through a bizarre sequence on brilliant holds to a no hands kneebar rest. The last section requires tricky balance and tops out the far left hand side. Making the top out is a little dangerous and has claimed at least one broken wrist.

Location: 40.000785, -105.296554.
