It's likely few climber go there, but it may affect the adventurous.
RW submitted the following description in 2003:
A killer (to be sure) line has been lurking just right of Monkey Puzzle. This is now a gorgeous, strenuous route with its own harrowing story. For years, Monkey Puzzle had been done using a brief rest that involved a good right hand edge on the top of an evidently solid sword. In preparing the new route, we were very skeptical of the integrity of the sword. Indeed, two light taps of the hammer sent the 500 pound sword earthward where it impaled itself two feet deep into the ground. Agamemnon would be proud. The Un-named Monkey ascends the continuously steep face just right of Monkey Puzzle by surmounting a strenuous bulge that is followed by a fully extended dyno. Difficult and interesting moves throughout make this a very worthwhile endeavour. A possible, but uncompleted, left hand variation could bring up the difficulty to 5.13. Good strenuous addition.
