Description [Suggest Change]
Follow 8 bolts up a steep left angling dihedral. I found this route to be very pumpy with the crux coming up high between the 6th and 7th bolt. Once the 8th bolt is clipped, I actually had to step down a few feet to a decent ledge and keep traversing left for about 10' and then up to reach the anchors. This may have not been the correct way but going up and over seemed a bit desperate for 10b. Rappel with 1 60m to the ground. Enjoy!
Location [Suggest Change]
This route is located on the Ironside wall of Monitor Rock. Once you reach the wall from the approach trail on the west side of Monitor Rock head left which goes uphill. The wall starts just past some very large boulders where a talus field begins. This is the 2nd route to the climbers left from Prospector.

8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with chains. The 2nd bolt has a chain hanging down from it.
