Description

This starts in the bottom, left corner on a juggy ledge. It then traverses up and right past a two finger pocket and some slopey crimps to a decent slopey rail. Then, throw up and left to a top ledge and mantle up. It requires some high feet and is a little sketchy, but it is well worth climbing.

Location

The boulder is the one on the left that you pass on the way down to Monkey Traverse. It is right along the trail and is hard to miss.

Protection

A pad and spotter.

A fun variation that probably does not change the grade is to start on the same low start hold and dyno to the mantel lip, then finish the route normally. Jul 3, 2016

Nice problem with a hidden crimp to the left of the mantle shelf and one straight up for your right hand which eliminates the mantle. Jan 21, 2012
Bob Culp finally accomplished this route in the Spring of 1961. Apr 30, 2011

It's a rather different feel (and harder) if you do it "pure" mantel style compared to reaching up with right hand to the higher, rounded hold while working a semi-mantel with left hand. Good either way (and if doing pure mantel, can use either arm). Apr 24, 2009
