Fat Monkey's Birthday combines the first pitch of 'Fat Head' and the second pitch of 'Leave my monkey alone'. Take the obvious crack line from the lower face up through the upper roof.

Pitch 1: Follow the right trending flake / crack up through the lower face to the "cave". From here you can either exit through a hole in the back of the cave or continue on to pitch 2. There is a bit of lichen on the lower part and the rock gets a bit granular towards the top of this pitch (A little more traffic and it will clean up nicely).

Pitch 2: Place some gear and commit to solid yet strenuous hand jams out and over the roof.


Bring a rack of cams including 1xgreen and yellow aliens, and camalots from #.75-#4. Perhaps an extra #1,#2, and #3 camalot to account for anchors.

As I commented under the rock. Be careful with your foot placements pulling the roof. Tha hand jams are great, but I had multiple foot holds just pop right off while pulling around. Fun route. May 26, 2004
